Tycho

Sharing outstanding poem by fellow blogger, Paul.

Poesy plus Polemics

Warehouse-13-Tycho-Brahe-Prosthetic-Nose-Artifact-1 Tycho Brahe’s Prosthetic Nose

(Regarding Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe, 1546-1601)

silver nose in the air

eccentricities famous

enamored of liquor

and women and spheres

drew the heavens

mathematically

reaching degrees of

flamboyant precision

a swashbuckling genius

who cuckolded kings

while resolving the

naked eye parallax

rearranged stars in

new accurate catalog

left upon agonized death

come with rumors of

murder and intrigue

to one with a keener

copernican mind

johan kepler who gave us

celestial physics

the rest as they say

is but history

Brahe’s self-composed epitaph:
“He lived like a sage and died like a fool”
