All poets are interested in patterns. When we hear a poem, we often love it as much for the patterns it makes as for the meaning carried inside the words. There are many formal names for the poetic conventions which comprise this venerable partnership, but for now we’ll simply concentrate on the syllable and the line, and what I call the marriage of music and meaning.
