    • Thank you, John. In my enjoyment of your own poetry I sense that you might understand the occasional lapse into compulsive play with the book of traditional forms….

    • Thank you, Jalal…this little poem is what they call an English sapphic stanza: three lines of eleven syllables each and a fourth line of five syllables. It was adopted from the Greek poets (Sappho) and not in the usual iambic meter of English, but fun to try. It’s a poem about itself! 🙂

      • Hi Cynthia ,l appreciate the beautiful respond .It takes me back to college years studying Lord Byron,Milton and Shakespeare .Have a wonderful day.Jalal
