This may be sung to the melody of "The Minstrel Boy".

The quantum ghostwave propagates through space;

probabilities surround it.

It crosses deep vacuum at light’s own pace;

no phenomenon can confound it.

Through happenstance our whole world evolves.

No force can e’er impound it.

Around this fact history revolves;

eldritch time alone can bound it.


Energy cannot exist alone;

it needs particles to wear it.

Energy gets taken out on loan,

until something comes along to share it.

Throughout the Universe matter glows;

light from stars hath brightly therein shone.

Complexity in moving patterns grows;

the seeds of life throughout the cosmos sown.
