Oh, Algebra
I love the clean lines of your matrices,
The symmetry of your parabolas,
The neatness of factoring quadratic equations
I love your quiet strength,
Your tiny details,
The peace you instill in my mind
You are an elegant dance of exponents and derivatives;
Neat figures on a page.
Oh, Algebra
You are the breast of a new-fallen snowdrift,
A pristine sky
You alone are the scaffolding
That holds up the world
