This work has reached the exceptional level
A cleverly crafted advertisement for your meter, as the mentor who metes out the metre (HA, I loved that). Hope this didn't scare them off, but I enjoyed the ride, and rode along the anapestic track, with is dactylic offshoots. You certainly covered the territory, professor.

    Thank you so much for this review and for that lovely sixth star. I hoped there was enough humour in it to dispel the fear. Lol.

Really enjoyed the clever tongue twister, with monitor metre might merit a master. Now say that ten times really fast.

A really fun poem, Jim. It's always a treat to see someone spell metre the same way I do. :))

Best of luck with your classes this year too.

    We metre spellers must stick together, otherwise the man who comes to read the electricity meter won't know whether to look in the cupboard under the stairs or start reading our poems. Thanks for this fun review.

-Great artwork to announce
your class and nice presentation.
-Notes are appreciated.
-I like the tone of your poem;
it is light and keeps the
reader's attention with
some witty description:
"...no yarns about yards"
"Though to monitor metre
might merit a master."
-Good luck with your class!

Hi, Jim. I am seriously considering taking the Metre class and want to know how to go about accessing it here. I have never taken a class before. Just to make sure I have it right... it is twice a week Tue, and Fri at 5:00 pm-Eastern USA time 4/5 - 5/10 (I noticed the Easter week is off). How many others have signed up? Will you give the class if there is just me? Just wondering?

Thank you

Melissa (Sugarray77)

    That is great news. No one has actually signed yet but yours is is the second firm interest that has been shown. I will run the class if there is only one student but livelier discussions happen when there are more. By the time the class starts we will all be on daylight saving with the UK where I am being 5 hours ahead of New York, so you have the times right.

    Go to Community - Writing Classes - Metre Class and follow the instructions for enrolment. Once you have confirmed your seat I will be in touch regarding downloading the teamspeak3 software I am using to converse orally with students. Please do not download this as suggested in Fanstory. I hope this helps. Thank you for your enquiry.

This is a great advertisement. What better way to convince people to join than showing them what they will be able to do?
I love the cartoon as well.
Good luck with your course.

Sounds as if it will be a good course and I wouldn't mind a refresher on a few of these metres but I don't think I can make it this time. I hope you manage to drum up sufficient interest to go ahead.

Thanks, but no thanks, to being taught a foreign language. I am broke anyway. And still into Asian fragments and free ramblings, ha ha (thanks Red).
I do admire your skill in making words jump through hoops in an orderly manner, and think you are a saint for spending your time as a teacher.

An interesting advertisement for a class I admire, one that will hopefully lead us away from Asian fragments and free ramblings. I always wondered what Coleridge had been smoking when he wrote that thing about metrical feet(an oxymoron in itself). I may be too far gone, but rhythm is the heart of poetry(and rhyme the rectum) so best wishes for your class.

    Thank you for this kind review. Your analysis of poetry and it's relationship to the human body and its functions was most amusing. We must not forget that when the parts of the body last held a meeting they elected the rectum as their leader because it was the most important part that, should it malfunction, everything would shut down in short order.

This is the reason why some poems don't have to make sense. Some are supposed to be silly and others making sense. I think that you did well in this one. Good luck in the contest!

    Thank you for reading and reviewing. I am not sure whether you feel that this falls into the category of the intentially silly or one that makes sense, I am pleased you thought it was done well.

A most creative way to announce your poetic meter (sorry, American speller, here) class! Great job in doing it in anapestic until you mention the dactylic line and drop the last foot in the catalectic line. Your notes say "tetrameter" but these seem much longer - hexameter, methinks.


 Comment Written 10-Mar-2019



reply by the author on 10-Mar-2019
    Thank you for this interesting review. They are indeed tetrameters. What you have to remember is that each foot of full anapaest and each full dactyllic foot contain three syllables to the two of iambic and trochaic metre. So a full anapaestic or dactylic tetrameter contains twelve syllables while a full iambic or trochaic tetrameter contains only eight.

    Most poets use headless anapaestic lines and catalectic dactyllic lines, which is something we will be going into during the class. Both of those techniques will reduce the total number of syllables in a line. I chose to give it the full Monty except for those two lines in S4.

reply by lyenochka on 11-Mar-2019
    You're so right! Dactyl, Amphibraic and anapestic feet are three syllables. (palm to forehead). Obviously, I need your class as it's been forty years since my last poetry analysis class. We used a terribly dry and overpriced text by Unbegaun. (Russian Versification) Alas, I don't think I can budget your class and life has some busy events coming up soon. I am so glad that you're here teaching. And I'll try to pay better attention so I can glean some knowledge from your students!
