This is a new one on me too! I agree with Charlie - poetic licenses are granted to all who write in verse so the least we can do is make use of them :)

On the contrary, Cryss-- I'm proud of you for tearing a word. You should do it more often. Come on, live wild-- misspell those words! That's a girl.

It really is a beautiful poem. I'd never heard of a "Waltz Poem" before. --Charlie
