JOHN NOBLE WILFORD BioGraffiti - A Natural Selection By John M. 112 pages, illustrated. The book consists of 39 poems, each accompanied by the kind of illustration one finds in scientific journals. Norton & Company, New York. A glossary in the back of the book enables the lay reader to interpret some of arcane scientific allusions that give the poems the bite of wit. Many of Dr. Burns' outrageous rhymes and puns are reminiscent of the late Ogden Nash, but many of his themes are unlikely to occur to most other poets.

But these were not spontaneous effusions by an almost illiterate peasant. Burns was a conscious craftsman; his entries in the commonplace book that he had begun in 1783 reveal that from the beginning he was interested in the technical problems of versification.

This is destined to be a cult-classic. You need a bit of intellectual and biological depth of knowledge to fully appreciate this little gem, but if you "get it", it is great.

After you read these delightful poems you will look at bugs and ponds and mountains in a different, brighter, light. You will increase your vocabulary too. If I had to pick a favorite, it would be 'Desert Range'- but each one is a gem.

A must-read if you love Biology and the English language. I've had this book for years. Its on the table in my office. Every once in a while, I drag myself away from my computer, pick it up, read a few pages, and go back to work. The word-play never gets old. Its a great gift for like-minded folks. Enjoy!
