    Peter, no I didn't. I didn't (and wouldn't attempt to) define poetry. I defined VERSE, a deliberately neutral and useful term. Have you ever heard the expression " prose-verse" to identify a " prose-poem" ? You haven't because prose and verse are opposites, NOT prose and poetry. Prose and verse are differentiated by form.
