Ten Days of Newton

Sir Isaac Newton, the founder of modern physics and mathematics, and arguably the greatest scientist of all time, was born on Christmas Day...thus a song to mark the occasion
Sir Isaac Newton.
Sir Isaac Newton in an engraving from 1760
In honor of Newton’s Birthday festival
the following song, to be sung to the tune of “The Twelve Days of Christmas.”

On the tenth day of Newton,
My true love gave to me,
Ten drops of genius,
Nine silver co-oins,
Eight circling planets,
Seven shades of li-ight,
Six counterfeiters,
Four telescopes,
Three Laws of Motion,
Two awful feuds,
And the discovery of gravity!

Happy Newton, everybody!
