Rhythm’s a trick of deft poets,
who know the pulses of their feet
give lines their tempo. And so it’s
like a poem’s pulsating heartbeat;
it’s hypnotic (and you know it’s
metric),—so drink in its potent beat!

When one hears a song’s rich measure
(the crests and troughs of its music,
the ebb and flow of its leisure),
it tunes like a score symphonic,
an orchestra of paced pleasure
with a sound and style that’s epic!
