Found Poem: A Line IsA point is that which has position but no magnitude nor dimensions.
A right line is length without breadth or thickness.
A mixed line is both right and curved.
A curve line continually changes its direction.
Parallel lines are always the same
perpendicular distance and they never meet
though ever so far produced.
Found Poem: An Angle DenotedAn angle is
the inclination, or opening
of two lines, having different directions,
and meeting in a point.
When an angle is denoted by three letters,
the middle one is the place of the angle,
and the other two denote the sides
containing that angle; thus,
let a b d be the angle,
a is the angular point,
a b and b d are
the two sides containing that angle.
