Cyberiad of Lem, A Love Poem

Beautiful Sunset
Cyberiad of Lem, with music
by ddball and Lafayette

This is part of a vision of Pat's. A translated version may be available. It comes from an old file I did, a few years ago.
Cyberiad of Lem, A Love Poem

Poetry from Lem's Cyberiad

Klapaucius thought, and thought some more. Finally he nodded and said:
"Very well. Let's have a love poem, lyrical, pastoral, and expressed in the language of pure mathematics. Tensor algebra mainly, with a little topology and higher calculus, if need be. But with feeling, you understand, and in the cybernetic spirit."
"Love and tensor algebra? Have you taken leave of your senses?" Trurl began, but stopped, for his electronic bard was already declaiming (see lyric)
