Some are times when what is shown
is greater than it's parts
The measure of the self be known
one must make a start

The less we fear the outcome
will be positive
More than any negative sum
is the power we have to give

Division of the number
by a common factor shared
May reduce the loss of slumber
by the route of Pi=r2

The answer we may see
if unequal to the task
Is in direct proportion to
our ability to ask

Awfully clever, this rhyme of yours
I think you must be wise
as you have done the math for me
before I could blink my eyes.

{which is a considerably fortunate thing, as I cannot count past 371}  

But I "can" read, and I enjoyed this very much.

meadowmuse,
And to think , math was never my strong subject ...glad you liked
Martie ,Thank you , every once in a while something still adds up
d,
Oh darn , and usually I keep that hidden right behind my species!
serenity,
I never expected to elicit a response like that !(Where were all these words when I was young and single ?)
Hoot,
Must be that apple I left on your desk
Nan,
Oh come on ! You can't have all the fun !
Doc
