Happy Valentine's Day!
I love seven – as a
Not only is seven prime, it is the numberof my granddaughters who all like math --
I want to make a mountain to celebrate
the girls and the women they become . . .
The mothers whose children learn to count by sevens,
the teachers whose pupils proclaim pi
and welcome numbers useful everywhere . . .
In my mother’s generation and still it lingers
the woman must be twice as good
as any man to be the one
for the job or the prize
or even admiration . . .
For our women let us pay
close attention to the numbers
And for our girls . . .
