A… Pear… Has… Fallen…, Father.

- Isaac, you’re pale.
__________________- A… pear…
Has… fallen…, Father.
_____________________- Where
Did it land?
_____________- Just… on… my… head!
- I see you shake.
_______________- I… feel… bad.
The… hit… was… terrible. I… am…
Shaken.
_________- But Isaac, pears and
Especially apples often fall
On heads, and if the tree is tall
The hit is strong. One apple fell
On Newton’s head, and I must tell
You it shook him out of his
Usual way of thinking.
______________________- This…
Is… right…, but… I’m… another…
Isaac…, not… Newton…, Father.
