I am π, motto and witty reason

Of wise man, what a beautiful series

valuing masterful enunciation.

With my singular law well measured

the Great Orb finally reduced

He went to the real ordinary system.

Archimedes, in precious sciences

create π, famous monument,

and although intimate gave valuation,

periphery of the circle knew,

duplicating geometric group,

resolve and appreciate extension.

Theorem bequeathed, memorable

as weird admirable favor

of the splendid immortal science;

and broad law, philosophical source

of deep truth and ascending

magnitude, discovered universal.

This poem hides the first 80 decimal places of the number π.

**Are you able to find them?**

#### Solution

In this poem, each figure of π is represented by the number of letters in each word. For example, "I am π, motto" = 3.14

Figures equal to 0 are indicated by ten-letter words, but taking care to subtract one letter from the previous word, in order to restore the computation by means of the corresponding drag. Note lines 7, 11, 15, 16, 17 ("... real. Archimedes ..." = 50)
