Challenge

By Sidney Tomshinsky, '31

The Magpie, June 1931, v. 32, n. 2, p. 29.

(An answer to Sir James Jeans' "Mysterious Universe")

So your God is a mathematician
And He plots and plans in numbers;
And the wondrous, wide-thrown Universe
Is only the perfect diagram
Of a finely worked equation;
And we are empty ciphers
In an algebraic thought?

Three days ago, I heard a song
That moved my mind to restless dreams.
Take a straight edged ruler
And diagram that song for me.
