Verse on Verse

To write blank verse is really just a breeze,
And rhyming couplets, simple as you please.
Five iambs in succession form a line,
And Shakespeare’s have no different form than mine.
But now and then for variety’s sake I’ll add
An extra syllable; and I’d be glad
Inversion to inflict upon the reader:
That is, to make a following word the leader.
