throw yourself at anyone,
decked out in diamonds.
Science-minded poetry lovers—and poetry-loving science minds—will relish this little collection of "poems to honor/the periodic table/three lines at a time."
Each of the periodic table's 118 known elements is given the haiku treatment by mathematician-turned-writer Mary Soon Lee, whose crisp, concise poems are accompanied by spare line drawings and very brief captions offering up fascinating elemental tidbits. Elemental Haiku
is a whimsical, wondrous delight! (KG)
