More displacement....

But I've just finished my Advent Devotionals, so feel entitled to a brief flurry, specially as I think this may possibly be right, though I don't generally do melancholy ;-)

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?

I came out as Gregg Shorthand.

Thanks, Kathryn.

Well I came out as French, said to "have been obsolete for a long time". Should we tell them....?

this is fascinating...Juggling, Shorthand, French,Latin, Metrical verse...I wonder what the full range of options is! Perhaps I'll do it again and see if I emerge as anything different.
