Woodworking: Ignore the critics, it may be worth your precious time to try some rhyme
Poor David's Almanac tells me that on this date 57 years ago, Newsweek magazine ran an interview with poet Robert Frost.
When the snappish New Englander was asked what he thought about "free" verse, the type of poetry that does not rhyme and has no discernible meter or rhythm, he replied:
"I'd just as soon play tennis with the net down."
Lots of poets these days would pooh-pooh Frost's dismissive comment.
