Prelude

They say that rhyme and rhythm are...

They say that rhyme and rhythm are
        Outmoded now.
I do not know, for I am far
        From high of brow.
But if the twain you take away,
        Since basely bred,
Proud Poetry, I dare to say,
        Would scarce be read.

With humble heart I thus define
        My rĂ´le in rhyme:
Oh may I never write a line
        That does not chime.
And though a verse be nigh as sweet
        As honey-comb,
To please me, let it have the beat
        Of metronome.
