By ice rivers
Pentametric typing appeals to me.
I enjoy counting syllables per line
Which adds discipline to my poetry
And demands another beat after nine.
Sonnets consist of one jundred forty
Syllables exactly, not more nor less.
That was Bill Shakespeare's form of recording.
What's good for Will is good for me I guess.
Eight of ten lines are already complete
The last and this bring the total to ten
The number of toes we count on two feet.
Our rhyme schemes change as thoughts approach the end
One final touch we must never forget
End the affair with summary couplet.
