Meter’s a trick of deft poets
who know the stresses of their feet
give odes their rhythm—. And so it’s
like a poem’s pulsating heartbeat.
It’s hypnotic (and you know it’s
magic)—so drink in its potent beat.

When one heeds a line’s rich measure,
(the crests and troughs of its music,
the ebb and flow of its leisure)
it tunes like a score symphonic,
a note harmonic,—a song of pleasure
with a sound and swing that’s epic!

"To have the soul of a poet is to feel with the mind, and to think with the heart."

~Ngoc Nguyen~
