Syntax


Scan the poem visually first

If you see a poem
With at least one line
Ending in a long dash –
You should read that poem –
With a pause at the end
Of only the lines –
Ending with that long dash

(pause longer between stanzas)

But if you see a poem
Without a long dash
Then you should read it
To pause at the end
Of every line

(and pause for commas,
of course)
