Ray Bobo's mathematical poem

Ray Bobo, a retired Georgetown mathematics professor, has written a love poem with mathematical symbols.  And, for those of us who might be unsure how to interpret the mathematics, Bobo has provided a parallel column with an English-language  interpretation of his mathematics.  Enjoy! 

"Give Me an Epsilon and I Will Treat It Well" first appeared in the American Mathematical Monthly (1980);  it also is found in the anthology Strange Attractors (A K Peters, 2008).

  1. I wonder what the epsilon represents?
