This page is where I began to post some poems with mathematical imagery. Now my BLOG (www.poetrywithmathematics.blogspot.com) has taken over that task. Still, if you scroll down you will find some interesting titles.
JoAnne Growney edited NUMBERS AND FACES, a small anthology of mathematical poetry, for the Humanistic Mathematics Network in 2001. Below (scroll down please) you will find a CONTENTS page for NUMBERS AND FACES. Print copies are no longer available but a pdf version of the anthology is available here.
