    I have sorted the problem out by stringing the information along the bottom of the poem: Dusk Smiles. Love, Suzette

    BTW I have a problem and I do not know how to address it. I posted the poem, but my details: name, contest name and date will not appear on the screen when I open it in "View". The poem, Dusk has Lost its Taste for Color, has been submitted to the contest. .... Now, I wonder how much of my lines of my previous poems are lost in the "View". Please help. Thank you. Suzette

    Actually it was called his 'conceits'. "A Wreath" was written to a specific formula (not only repeating the end words in the following lines). Another of his 'conceits' (concrete poems) is"The Altar". He wrote many poems in this fashion. Therefore, I would conclude that 'A Wreath' was not a poetry form, but one of many concrete poems which he had written. Sorry to differ with you on this one. Love, Suzette

    reason, i guess i like the contemporary rendition of the wreath; it gives me leeway to explore the form in a more unrestrained way..:) huggs!

    A poem in perpetual motion.... You can cut it anywhere and start reading it in a loop and it must still make sense. Quite tricky :-)

    I have found this an interesting challenge and had done some research on the history of this poem (on the internet) and had found a picture of the actual poem, The Wreath. It is an exact form and I would have classified it as a Concrete poetry form (as Wikipedia had done). Thank you for pushing the envelope with this one, Nette. Love, Suzette
