    Dear Frank,
    may i suggest that you maintain a 7/6/7/5 syllabic count in each stanza and your poem could become more melodious, i feel.

    You'll find me in my poems,
    If time you take to read;
    There is a bit of my life,
    In every one you read.

    So do not be a stranger,
    Come in and close the door;
    Do read my life of danger,
    About my days of 'yore.

    I do not think a living, contemporary poet can vie easily or successfully with a classical poet who is no more and has had his poems known and read world-over for several hundred years.However, I am of opinion that number of poems also matter apart from the quality.Otherwise, a poet with a few poems gets ranked better than one with a colossal work.I think the present method followed is not a very ideal one.

    This is a poem in 'iambic dimeter form'

    The Dancing Lass

    The dancing girl:
    She makes a whirl,
    And twists and turns
    In majesty;
    With gestures made
    For emotions,
    She walks in style
    And jumps awhile;
    In shiny garb
    Of silk: in hues
    And plaited hair,
    All flower-decked;
    With painted face
    And anklets belled;
    Bejeweled much,
    She moves with grace:
    So rhythmical
    To melody;
    In solo/groups,
    Gracefully stoops;
    She’s trained so hard
    A youthful star;
    Her soul in art,
    Enticing hearts:
    A dancing belle
    She does so well!
