Word Ways


The following poems illustrate a novel prosodic concept. The first set - composed by J.A. Lindon - is a pair of poems which are mutually convertible, both with respect to their rhyme-schemes and with respect to the acrostical initial letters of their lines, wand which are also written entirely in monosyllables. The second set - composed by Walter Shedlofsky - is a set of three - not an acro-duplex, but an acro-triple. The members of this triad of poems are all mutually convertible, both acrostically and rhyme-schematically.
