Re "And yet it works" (22 July). (Declaration of interest: I fell in love with science aged 5 and never looked back ...)
I caress your hypothesis
And gently adjust your little factors.
How excellent your axioms,
How open, free and wild your system:
Who can truly model your beauty,
Who can hide what you explore?
My love, my love, let us experiment
To boldly go, never to
