The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Scanning well

Brian J. Noggle has retrieved from his archives a sonnet which does not quite compare thee to a summer's day. I'd quote it here, but how much of a fourteen-line poem can you extract without getting into copyright difficulties?

I will, however, quote this:

[R]egardless of my merit in structured poetry, much of my free verse is crap. Which is par for that form.

My free verse, historically, has been so called because I obviously can't sell it to anyone.

A friend of mine years ago defined free verse as "prose without punctuation."
