Song of the Simple Universe

Here is my holiday offering to all my readers. Thank you for reading.

 Song of the Simple Universe

(Hadrons are a class of fundamental particles enshrined in the lexicon of the standard model of modern physics. The Simple Universe is the theory that all is energy.)

Who has seen a hadron?                                                                                                                        Who knows she exists?                                                                                                              Clothed in colors, flavors, spins.                                                                                                 Wrinkles in a mist.

Who has seen a hadron?                                                                                                                   Called her by her name?                                                                                                                  Fermi, bose, neutrino, higgs,                                                                                                              Are they not the same?

We have seen the hadrons.                                                                                                                 Cosmic wrinkles small,                                                                                                                    Distant giants, moons and stars,                                                                                               Creatures short and tall,                                                                                                             Walked among them, tasted, touched,                                                                                   Energetic, all.

(To be sung to the tune of “Who is Sylvia?” words by William Shakespeare, melody by Franz Schubert) Charles Scurlock, 2013
