I am sooooo happy with this quiz!!!

Songs of Innocence, Introduction
You are 'regularly metric verse'. This can take
many forms, including heroic couplets, blank
verse, and other iambic pentameters, for
example. It has not been used much since the
nineteenth century; modern poets tend to prefer
rhyme without meter, or even poetry with
neither rhyme nor meter.

You appreciate the beautiful things in life--the
joy of music, the color of leaves falling, the
rhythm of a heartbeat. You see life itself as
a series of little poems. The result (or is it
the cause?) is that you are pensive and often
melancholy. You enjoy the company of other
people, but they find you unexcitable and
depressing. Your problem is that regularly
metric verse has been obsolete for a long time.

What obsolete skill are you?

Thank you John H.! This quiz made my day!!!

I don't care if they think regularly metric verse is obsolete and depressing, I'm an aspiring medievalist, and linguist, so I know the truth. There is very little in this life more enjoyable than perfectly metered poetry! Go Shakespeare, Chaucer, and the like! Woohoo I can't wait to tell Dr. Ambrisco!
