Then, at last when words did come, the modern machine was somehow dumb.
Now, at last 'twill all come forth in Words and Rhyme of simple verse.
I woke at five with dream of Shakesperean Sonnet, as though some ghost of ages past had cast some spell upon it.
Alas, to come forth to light of day with Iambic Pentameter cast away.
Now here I am with meter up and meter down like some Joker before the Royal crown sounding the death knell all around.
Knowing that I am dangerously clever at pitting one form over against another, for in my dates and time there is no rhyme nor reason.
I am at loss to place them in their season.
Ohhh in vain idle Words I find so close at hand … to tie the dreamer to rocks or sand. But hope that all thus swirled up will land with deep impression on some fertile ground
