Over in creative writing class, I came up with a pi poem. I don't know if anyone has thought of this before: essentially, a poem versified according to the digits of pi. And, of course, it has to be about a circle or sphere of some sort (and don't forget the metaphorical structure!) Here's my first attempt:

I travelled

once

the wide, wide world

Went

as far as I could

Just when I thought I reached journey's end

I found

--to my wide eyed surprise!--

was back where I began

Other pi-related poems I found involved words whose letter lengths corresponded to pi:

Paul the Mathematician's Pi Poems

Lorreen's poem about pie

A reworking of The Raven (encoding 740 digits!)

or rhyming the numbers:

Steve Bergen's pi poem

or simply about pi itself:

A poem by Jesse Campbell, 3rd grade

Liz's pi poems
