elvira, I tried at least a dozen ways, and I can't do it, either.

thank you so much for your reply Balladeer...i do feel that the visual presentation greatly enhances a poem...and my little rhymes need all the help they can get...your poems, on the other hand, would look good even in braille

PS: told a friend to check out this site, mainly because of your poetry, i may not always comment, but sometimes i am just too awe struck

While this isn't exactly the forum for this, the answer is quite simple. Just use the begin center HTML tag in front of your poem, and the end center HTML tag to close it. Look at the FAQ page for a link leading to HTML formatting.

I can't show you the tags here
because typing them in will cause the
text to be centered
