Verse, part III

Kepler told us all about the planetary or-
Bits, and that they go round in endless ovals, which might bore,
Except he also said that they sweep out in equal time
An equal area of their orbit, which is quite sublime.
Since he was Tycho's student, the lesson, I suppose,
Is: Always find a teacher with a strangely waxen nose.
