Treasure Island

Vera Sidhwa


I learned to calculate,
And it was a difficult calculation.
I learned to calculate to a precise precision.
That was a great scientific decision.

In my chemical lab,
I kept tab,
Of what I could calculate,
While I thought and sat.

In precision or accuracy,
I knew it's important efficacy.
I calculated scientific.
For every number, I loved it.

I used spectrum wavelength,
I made calculations,
Significant digits,
Causing delights and lab elation.

I learned to hear the lab laughter,
When my friends used a calculation,
That caused the entire lab,
To turn into ACCURATE jubilation.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
