Greater than the Sum ( a poem of inspiration)
Diophantus, of Greece, "the father of algebra", most superb,
Would give his finest applause, and him, would not perturb.
His most noteworthy ovation, and on any eloquent occasion,
Never to seem, as high, held in esteem, the human equation.
A gathering of three, not all in mass, an assembly, there to be,
Grand accomplishments, to surpass, may be ours to foresee.
No algebraic problem drawn, to be solved, and is so resolved,
The exact solution is known, by power shown. of those involved.
That formula, "A squared, plus B squared, is equal to C squared",
The Pythagorean theory, another of ancient Greece, to be shared.
This, mathematicians still all adore, yet our lives to hold much more,
As by our union, we all implore, a world of wonder, does lie in store.
The human equation, to make all the difference, in our daily living,
That contribution of each, a cherished meaning, that we're giving.
The whole of it all, is a greater value, than each, its singular parts,
Its composition to expand, is magnified in its sum, by our hearts.
