Help: poetry posting, etc.

Subject: poetry posting, etc.
From: BigDaddy

I posted a poem recently and was surprised to see that, in spite of my efforts to use proper form, punctuation, etc., it wound up looking like a long weird sentence. I've seen other postings that kept lyrics, verses in their proper form. So, as a relative newcomer I'm seeking your help oncee again. Many thanks,

J.

Thanks, Alex. I guess I didn't look there enough!

It's the first post - about the BR tag. That's the one you put at the end of each line of poetry to keep the lines from running together.

The punctuation is up to you. (grin)
