Here are two poems in honor of pi, from the Mathematical Poetry site:

If inside a circle a line

Hits the center and goes spine to spine

And the line’s length is “d,”

The circumference will be

d times 3 point 1 4 1 5 9.

Simple Simon met a pi man

Going to the fair.

Said Simple Simon to the pi man,

“You have unusual ware.

The pie’s I’ve seen before were round

But, gosh, your pi’s r^{2}.”

LOL! LOVE the Pi man poem!

i think the pi man is strongly inapropriate. i mean how are little children honestly supposed to understand this?!?! honestly…

Little children are not supposed to understand this, of course. But it’s fun for the rest of us!

I think you should add more poems not just one or two

Thank you for the suggestion, Sharon. These are not my poems, though — I’m not that creative! There are more poems at the Mathematical Poetry site, but I just quoted my favorites.
