A beautiful line of verse has twelve feet, and two wings.
~ Jules Reynard
Give your poems jet propulsion.
Fuel them at their basic level–the line.
Learn the use and value of line breaks.

Line is fundamental to poetry because it differentiates poetry from prose.
Caesura concerns the division of lines into units of syntax or rhetoric.
Line and caesura: Together they are what we use to paint poetry on the page–how we connect the basic units of the poem.
