Written by a man of science and of art named Alan Lightman, "Song of Two Worlds" is a collection of poetry from the physicist, as he blends his two disciplines magically for a genuinely fascinating insight into the world around us. With fine verse, "Song of Two Worlds" is a top pick.
A sample piece from his book, “#12”
I knock on the door of the universe, asking:
What makes the light of the stars?
What makes the heat of my flesh?
What makes the tear shape of rain?
Questioned, the world walks on little feet.
Ask and take wing while my body
Stays bound far below-
Body, poor bone
That will wear down
Like this ruined villa perched on the sea.
So much that I’ve lost,
I have nothing
Except a fierce hunger,
To fathom this world.
Naked, I knock on the door
Wearing only my questions.
Hope that you enjoy this review…
