### Found Poem: Practical Geometry

Geometry, is

that Science

which treats of

the descriptions and proportions

of magnitudes

in general.

### Found Poem: A Line Is

A 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 Denoted

An angle isthe 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,

*b*is the angular point,

*a b*and

*b d*are

the two sides containing that angle.
