This verse that beats and rhymes
must throb with rhythmic time
to the cadence and the chimes
of ev’ry line right on the dime;

it must have swings and flows
that move with perfect meter
to the feet of highs and lows
that's nice and tight but neater.

This line that strums a sound
with high and low notes of stress
rebounds and hangs around
with balladic artifice;

this rhyme that I well-writ
with obvious good pitch
won’t die if I sell it
to Shakespeare to get rich!

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

--Ngoc Nguyen
