his most well known poem therein/


and read aloud here


 WCW fornmat presentation ,here in the first few lines is how he wrote it according to his complete poems anthology


Of asphodel,that greeny flower,

          like a buttercup

                         upon its branching stem--

save that it's green and wooden--

              I come,my sweet,

                                  to sing to you.

Brian, your blog post titles have been very clever. Once again you've introduced me to a new form, which I will take the time to research. After which, I may just go ahead and "try a triadic-line." :) ~Mark

Thanks for that additional information. I can see what you mean: The Poem Hunter clip doesn’t display the “three descending and indented parts.”
