Wavelengths and nerves and photoreceptors
Reds, blues and greens
Infrared, ultraviolet

Rods and cones
Night vision and eye shine

Science has solved the riddles of sight
But what of beauty?

On that it is silent.

  1. When I saw that red and purple combined, the first thing that came to mind was the Red Hat Society — those ladies who take to heart the poem “When I grow old, I shall wear purple,” and go about in purple dresses and red hats. I’ve run into groups of them from time to time, and it’s quite a sight. They certainly do have fun, though!
