Forgot the knots

In your error there is a'way making 
Whilst striving in your searches collating,

Are they blackly scrawled your inky walls.?
Truly "A vice" this undertaking...

Explain peruse or buying extra shoes
True vanity versus inspiration.

    Is there vanity by 'peruse', Joe? Or is it just spreading your poetic wings? Well Lebkuchenmann, I hope you acquire the shoes of Hermes and post more of your amazing writes!:) Best wishes, Love, Mikki

    Label the type of meter on the bottom of the verse Joe Light & Love [Not sure what this write means dear? each couplet seems like the beginning of its own verse?]

    Thanks Joe I didn't know how much work I was setting myself up for LOL correcting 35 poems for assorted meter GAH! I only know 3 meters LOL [hope they pick those 3 /1 already didn't LOL] anyway it's all good I learn too! PS Joe dear YOU MUST have 10 syllables per line to be pentameter penta 5 x 2 iams per meter = 10 syllables see? [1 iam 1 IAM] see? [unstress STRESS] see? [ un LEASH] 2 syllables, 2 iambs, 1 foot of iambic meter
