Poetic License: Fibonacci Moon Song

By Staff | Aug 5, 2011

Full

Moon

Over

Florida,

Come to me tonight.

Let your milky light nurse my eyes

With silver bright, soothe my sighs with silent lullabies.

Let us make love, you from above, I dreaming below,

Before daylight uncovers us –

Florida full moon,

Come to me,

Tonight,

Come.

Come.

A “Fib” or Fibonacci poem counts the number of syllables in every line according to the Fibonacci sequence of numbers introduced into Western Mathematics by Leonardo Fibonacci in the 13th Century: 1,1,2,3,5,8,13 The sequence occurs often in nature: spirals of shells ,flowerets of sunflowers, bracts of a pine cone and the scales of a pineapple.
