Did not hear about Quintus Horace?
Descended the laws to verse in grace
On unity and harmony
On meter and versification
On invention, imitation and on the art of characterization
Perfect were his laws as mathematical equations.
Though was Rational in form and style
But honored all Aesthetic considerations
In spirit he was purely a Roman
But ignited the passion for Art and life
As was fashioned in ancient Athens,
Attaining brevity and avoid obscurity
To Him was the key for poet`s security,
Devised the rules for versification:
Forbad Mediocrity and blind imitation
That could Spoils all the pure fancies and romantic passion,
Compose well or don’t rhyme either
If ignorant to a word “decorum and meter.”
If you want be a man of Art and Letter
Respect Horace and absorb the classic literature
Avoid obscurity?Let each context dictate its own...
bespoke, concise, involved in the adjustments
concuring... infinite demand. I do, but then...
reality tends to juggle th' jug'... too quick t' drink...
YEAH... me simple... I sink....
