    • Abstract:
      This article presents the author's analysis of the commonalities between poetry and applied mathematics through poem number 54 in the collection "A Shropshire Lad" by A. E. Housman. It examines the poem's combined patterns of words, chiasmus, and anapests. He believes that like poetry, applied mathematics combines several meanings and patterns. Zb&acaron;ganu's inequality, named after its creator Gheorghe Zb&acaron;ganu of the University of Bucharest, is compared to Housman's poem number 54. The author suggests that understanding the commonalities and differences between poetry and applied mathematics allows people to understand each other as those who make and use symbols.
