It’s Valentine’s Day this weekend, so time for another physics poem. If you’d like to read the poems from past years, they’re archived with the tag Valentine’s Day Physics Poem, accessible here.
Passion is passion. If you find yourself writing letter after letter, be they “love”, or “Physical Review” Or if you are the quiet sort and notice only in your mind those questions, time after time whenever silence reigns: “how do I make things right?” If you look ahead and your branching, uncertain, futures, each so different still have one thing in common. If you could share that desert island, that jail cell, and count yourself free. You’ve found your star. Now it’s straight on till morning.
