A poem by Beverly Stock.

I could never be adverse
To the purring of a sigh,
As it is when I write verse
And letters rhyme as “Y” with “I”?
Acoustics lure me to the sounds
That makes a poem auditory,
Such as a crackling “C” is profound
While some sound more literary.
Popping “K” sounds and “C” in crackle
Catch us when our attention varies.
Rhyming is never ramshackle
So poetic themes don’t miscarry.
