Celebrate Classical Music

August 12, 2012 at 9:04 PM

Higgledly piggledy
Classical repertoire
Heavenly harmonies
Rhythmic delights.

Vast are the choices if
Words can’t express when your
Psycho-emotional
State hits new heights.

I love it! As a musician, I'd call it a poem in 6/8, but can any one guess the poetry meter here?

Dactylic Dimeter! I had to look up the name-- is that cheating? it's been a while since I've reviewed them-- but I knew which foot the rhythm created ;)
Fun poem!!

Or is it perhaps dactylic octameter?

This is a double dactyl. A dactyl has three syllables with the stress on the first syllable. The double means there are two dactyls per line (most of the time.) There are other details of the form but google will do a better job than I will of explaining it.
