Pi Poetry

Something great to do for "Pi Day"
March 14 = 3/14


A few of us at work started making up poetry made with respects to the digits in Pi (3.1415...).

Here are a few samples:

Piaphrase: Phrases or sentences in which the number of characters in each word follow the digits in the sequence of Pi.

  • Mike Rollins: "The I that a world neglected to notice knows how peace resolves adversity"
  • Ron Smith: "Wow, a file I found downloads, is zipped tight, and still launches WindowsXP"
  • Mark Sonntag: "For a dime I speak violently or wander about the green pastures elegantly washing catatonic fur"
  • Make your own Piaphrase: Enter the Piaphrase message board



    Piaku: Poetry in which the number of syllables in each sentence correspond to the consecutive digits of Pi.

    The Storm: by Mike Rollins
    3 Flash, Rumble
    1 Rain
    4 Awesome thunder
    1 Wind
    5 The wind will plunder
    9 As did the pirates from on yonder
    2 Raid, fall
    6 Damn! My ship is sinking
    5 The water stinging
    3 Quivering
    5 The storm moves onward
    8 I'm tired, I'm cold, I sink, I die.
