Her Prosody

Use can so well assist the pen:
For instance, take the poet, when
He finds the rhyme particular
Which seemed as distant as a star
And makes him happiest of men.

By metres conned, again, again,
I feel equipped to praise you, then —
Assist me sing you beyond par
Use can so well.

As poised and lyric as a wren,
As graceful as a line of ten
Long-cherished syllables you are,
And lovelier than a rondeau, far —
O finest praise within my ken:
You scan so well!
