Acoustics

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.
