Newton's Garden

I may be dwarfed 

By the size of the stars 

But they are dwarfed 

By my knowledge of the stars

 

Picking the fruits 

Of a vast Universe 

With a book in my hand 

They taste so much sweeter 

 

Cradled by invention 

Elevated by love 

An equation or two 

Amplifies the divine

 

The giants of Newton’s garden 

Look to help us all 

By ignoring our whims 

And growing the eternal flower

    Good write D.
    A legend says that I nearly discovered gravity. An apple fell on my head but knocked me out. The same happened to Newton, except it did not knock him out, and he had discovered gravity by the time I had recovered! lol.
