Poetic Preferences

Fiorella's taste in poetry runs counter to the current trend, which seems to be overlong flowery essays with the punctuation omitted.  She's more of an old-fashioned kinda gal.  In fact, she prefers rhymed verse, though not exclusively, because she thinks it has  a stronger impact, is a better mnemonic, and presents a more of a challenge to the writer.   She also likes poetry that speaks strongly in as few words as possible, in which the message outweighs the words.

Like, ahem, her own.
