my lesson on the difference between a poem and a song

Now the difference is simple but complex.
For poetry your rhythm is syllables
and the pacing .
While in a song the syllables act like an
Acrobat trying to balance on a beam
of constant beat .
While still trying to morph into a
matching melody


You may well be a contemporary visionary!


. like my lost dreams...the flood
