Lillian Morrison (1917-2014) was a NYC poet and librarian whose work I first met in the poetry-with-math anthology, Against Infinity. Here is one of her poems from that collection.
Poet as Mathematician by Lillian Morrison
Having perceived the connexions, he seeks
the proof, the clean revelation in its
simplest form, never doubting that somewhere
waiting in the chaos, is the unique
elegance, the precise, airy structure,
defined, swift-lined, and indestructible.
Morrison's insightful poem disappoints me in one important way: her mathematician-poet is "he." Another Morrison poem, "The Locus of a Point," may be found in my posting for 15 September 2014.
