“You have the heart of a poet”

I was told for the longest time

But I only recently began to write

And became guilty of the rhyming crime.

  3. Guilty as charged, As Allen Poe has said poems are words set to music. A very good rhyming crime!

    • I don’t think I’d ever heard the Poe quote before. Thank you for introducing it to me. I like it a lot. It might be the lyricist in me, but I’ve always felt that words have a rhythm and cadence.
