Definition of Heat

  HEAT   noun
  Heat, says Professor Tyndall, is a mode
      Of motion, but I know now how he's proving
  His point; but this I know -- hot words bestowed
      With skill will set the human fist a-moving,
  And where it stops the stars burn free and wild.
  Crede expertum -- I have seen them, child.

Gorton Swope
