I’m doing “Intro To Poetry” https://dailypost.wordpress.com/blogging-university/intro-poetry/. I’m having a little trouble, how to do it right. I came across this post, it will be a great help to me, so I’m sharing it with my readers. Thank you, Jane you are a great inspiration to us new writers learning to write poetry.
l e a v e s gently tremble as the branches sway. the spell they weave is picked up by the wind, and wafted through my open window. those strong trees protect me, cleaning the air, and vow to shelter my children long after I am forgotten. I know they will keep their prom ise
For anyone interested in trying visual poetry such as this, I’d like to illustrate how it is done using HTML. You simply go to HTML in your editor, arrange the writing as you wish, then put <pre> at the beginning, and </pre> at the end, like this:
<pre>leaves blah blah …… blah blah promise</pre>
Don’t go back to the visual editor or you may lose the format – although I just did that and got away with it.
Happy versification 🙂
