I've done it before, but that's OK because I like this one.
Although I am currently just starting Blind Assassin by Margret Atwood, the book that is sitting beside my computer here at home is The Poet's Handbook by Judson Jerome. If you don't own this book, you really, really should. Anyone who wants to write, or just enjoy reading poetry should always have this book within reach of your fingertips.
Then, with that poem or another, count the total number of lines and find by what factors they are divisible. For instance, a thirty-six line poem might have six units of six lines, three units of twelve lines, twelve units of three lines, eighteen units of two lines, two units of 18 lines. Try each.
As always those who wish to may play along.
