A FEW POINTERS FOR WRITERS OF POETRY ON RHYME ZONE
Hi Kurlman, Thanks for this post with some excellent suggestions. I'd like to offer two more. Take your poem for a walk. I print a copy and pull it out of my pocket every mile or so and read it. I am always amazed at the things I notice and the ideas that pop up when I am I am out for a walk and away form the computer. Goethe called himself Der Wanderer, the hiker, and a suggestion does not come from a much better source. Second, memorize your poem. I find that if I have difficulty memorizing a piece that it might be because it is not very memorable, or that it does not flow.
