Meter Over Rhyme

No one ever told that man

“Meter over rhyme”

It’s not about the words you use.

The art is in the time.

It’s brevity, it’s gravity;

the date upon the dime.

If once a wise man ever wrote,

meter over rhyme.

  1. But people love rhyme…though you are in the company of John Milton there….rhyme the invention of a barbarous age and all that….clever poem too.
