Some are real stinkers but, like spoiled children, this parent still lets them live with me. Other poems I have written are not bad, even good enough to have been read on the air on PBS in St. Louis. Most of the archaic poetry has been used publicly in church.
Some of the poetry in this index is in traditional Western forms. There are sonnets, some pentameter, and even alliterative verse. These forms are, if a bit unfashionable, at least familiar. But some of this work takes a more ancient form: parallel lines rhymed by idea, not sound, as found in the Book of Psalms. I have a nice essay written about this poetic form and I will upload it as soon as I have time.
