Thanks, Beth! I am happy that you caught that little intentional nuance in my poem; you’re the first to point it out, and I was wondering if anyone would catch it. :) We say many one syllable words as two; I love the way we speak, almost musical in a sense, inflections of the voice rising and falling with syllables being drawn out in portions. In my humble opinion, it’s like listening to Mozart, linguistically — ha! Thanks for reading. I hope you’ll check out more of my work.
