Many thanks! Reply Dr. Shiny Titus September 21, 2018 That was fun to read!!! Reply Mark Stone September 22, 2018 R.G. Hello. I have three comments. First, I like the idea of a conversational exchange between a man and a woman in a poem. It reminds me of the song “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” Second, because of the space between “dear” and “clear,” the rhyme did not resonate with me that strongly. In a conversation poem, I would have a rhyme in each segment of the conversation. Third, if you have colorful language in a conversation between a male and a female, it might make some readers more comfortable if you identify the speakers as Wife and Husband, rather than Girl and Boy, for example. Here is what I have in mind: Wife: Iamb, iamb, iamb, iamb, rhyme A Iamb, iamb, iamb, iamb, rhyme A Husband: Iamb, iamb, iamb, iamb, rhyme B Iamb, iamb, iamb, iamb, rhyme B Of course, poems are not always intended to make the reader comfortable. It depends on your objective. Thank you for sharing your poems with us!
