 Emeritus P: 1,919 Since Zoobyshoe is the artist around here I thought I would try my hand at poetry. This is a villanelle in iambic tetrameter. Any feedback would be appreciated. Mathematical Mind The thought progression is precise; all concentration focused bright. Can formulation be concise? A mathematical device is utilized to make things tight. The thought progression is precise. But will the drastic change suffice while keeping everything just right? Can formulation be concise? Perhaps the problem can entice A quite extraordinary sight. The thought progression—is precise? Of course, just having to think twice is what makes solving a delight. Can formulation be—concise! Eureka, the result is nice and everything looks alright; The thought progression is precise: Can formulation be concise?
 P: 533 I like it. Good work dduardo! I didn't know there were more ways of doing the iambic thing, I thought it was all pentameter, thats interesting.
 Emeritus P: 1,919 Thanks and yes you can do iambic in different ways. Take my first line: ^The thought ^progres^sion is ^precise; 4 feet = tetrameter 5 feet = pentameter
