So...It is fair to ask. Why do we write rhyming poems at all? Who gives a shit about 'lame meeter' as John Milton described it and can we not say with prose our deepest thoughts, our feelings, and our intent or do we need a vehicle unencumbered?
I think the latter. I think that unbounded and un-ruled our feelings are clearer, more pronounced and our thoughts paint pictures with fewer words. The rhymes simply help us to remember. Callimachus liked that concept and we will look at him a little further down the page.
Plodding along though, I continue to try as each of us must and my only encouragement would be for each of us to see things and people where before we may only have looked at them.
