O Math, you are so much more
Than a subject students deplore.
O Math, though done in pencil,
You are truly transcendental.
Some think it’s numbers and tests,
But they don’t get to see the rest
Of the wonder you possess
As, through nature, you manifest.
Some don’t give an equation,
Enough appreciation.
The rules of reciprocity
Show that you’re your own philosophy.
Through functions such as cosine
You let us peek into the mind
Of the Creator Divine
With endless solutions to find.
