This board is a composition workshop, like a writers' workshop: post your work with questions about style or vocabulary, comment on other people's work, post composition challenges on some topic or form, or just dazzle us with your inventive use of galliambics.
Well, I suppose, but it is rather crushing to know that my first elegiac couplet started with a spondee in both lines.
Thank you Annis; you should expect a lot of that on the trochaic tetrameter catalectic with scazon.
I think I might have to return to this forum for another attempt at another two lines.

A year to the very day! I have just begun composing at a rate of a couplet per day - not that all I do in a day is a couplet but I feel drained after one.
