Bring to this class a typed draft of your original poem, using one of the two options described below.

Option A: sonnet (14 ll., rhyme scheme; no meter required, though you’re welcome to accept the challenge)

Option B: poem of at least 14 lines, with or without rhyme

in either case, your poem has a connection to science in some way–either direct or indirect.

For example, the speaker in Poe’s poem “Sonnet to Science” directly addresses Science itself.  For another example, the speaker in “Uncertainty Principle” is a person who uses aspects of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle to express her sadness and confusion at losing her husband.
