Chosen Words

Thursday, May 25, 2017 by The Press in Opinion


If poems do not rhyme, it seems, they make no sense to me.

I read them, then I wonder what I was supposed to see.

I read along and try to follow what the author ponders;

But somehow I get lost between the “hithers” and the “yonders.”

Rhyming keeps the reader straight and lets him know that soon,

The culmination of the words will quickly end the tune.

The rhythm of a poem seems to carry every note.

To always have a poem rhyme would surely get my vote!

You’re never left there hanging; It’s completed every time;
