A National Pi Day Poem


My Pie Find;
a poem for Pi Day
Pi are square and pies are round
some are tasty while some are not.
Come and see the pie I have found,
pies of this like cannot be bought.
Cowbirds love here to fish around
to see what's good their cow has brought.
Corn, worms and bugs therein abound,
beats any fish they've ever caught.

1.  Today, March 14 is National Pi Day.  It is traditional to write a 'pi-haiku,' or 'pi-ku,' but I decided this year to write a conventional rhyming poem. (another link, to the National Day Calendar)
2.  Pictured is a 'cow pie' which in lay person's language is a neat flat round pile of cow manure.  They dry and can be used as fuel for lots of things from fuel for the stove to a substitute Frisbee when playing in the fields.

The link says that there are only two kind.  The Wiki Writers have not been to Texas.  Ours are white, larger than theirs, and look a little like longed legged cranes.  They spend their days in the fields following a herd of cattle.

Today, March 14 (3-14 or 3.14) is Pi Day (link). Pi Day is celebrated mostly by mathematicians but you can join in on the fun, somehow. Me? I am writing this Pi Poem for my blog. Perhaps next year I will write another Pi Haiku

I am not a mathematician but I do have a math minor to go along with my bachelor of science in economics. For me that involved taking seven college math classes for a total of 21 semester hours.

Differential Equations, DE, was my most involved class that I completed. Advanced Calculus was my 'weedout' class, i.e. I dropped it before completion.
Read here to find out why this course "weeded me out."

Hi! Love the cow pie! Used to have a lot of those around when I was a kid. We do to Raf's cardio dr. tomorrow. But it's only in Weatherford, 18 miles away. Hope everything is going well with you!
