So, I'm currently working through Stephen Fry's "The Ode Less Travelled", with its many poetry exercises. If anyone would be interested in joining me, I will post up some of the exercises here in the poetry workshop, and my attempts to complete them.

I have reached Anapestic Hexameters, which are:
t't'tum t't'tum t't'tum t't'tum t't'tum t't'tum

The existential squirrel...
In the woods stood the stump of a tree with a squirrel inside of its core
But its core with its rotten detritus of wood flesh and littered with leaves
Couldn't leave any viewer a view of the shambles of life on the floor
Of the floor of the wood where lie shattered remains of that squirrel's beliefs.

Well, I admire your ability to study these different forms of poetry and to succeed in performing like you did here. I think it takes a great deal of talent and patience. I hope some others will join you, as for me I totally lack the patience needed .

It's good though to revive the poetry workshop! Thank you!
