I was having some difficulties explaining poetic metre to a few people the other day–i was calling it the drumbeat, but I guess I was inarticulately right…it is the melody, the rhythym–the points in a phrase stressed and unstressed.

I know back in highschool/university when I was first taught this, I thought the prof was on crack. Now, I find myself pointing it out to people…and they in turn looking at ME, in the same way. 🙂
