    Poem

    Dear members of the forum,
    I would like to ask if you think these lines are acceptable as a poem/poem fragment. (They are not supposed to rhyme or have the same verse-length, but their iambic metre should be perceivable):

    From time to time I like to leap in Whitmanís style:
    How do I like this pilgrim without fear
    With mighty song of courage in his spotless soul,
    His hair of grey so proudly waving round his head,
    His step so lithe was once.
    It has been said, Iím also fond of Whitmanís run

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Oh, I quite understand. It is just that I like to thank - both in advance (if only for reading/paying attention) and afterwards. Thank you very much.

    Re: Poem

    I have to admit that I don't know much about iambic pentameter, but I do occasionally write an unrhymed verse. See the "Poetry and Prose" folder for some of my efforts and also those of others. (Especially check out "Perfect People." After you read it feel free to comment. In fact, please do. I want to hear what people have to say. (While this one has the same title as one I previously posted (in my previous persona) it is different, especially the ending.)
