Obsolete Skillz


You are 'regularly metric verse'. This can take many forms, including heroic couplets, blank verse, and other iambic pentameters, for example. It has not been used much since the nineteenth century; modern poets tend to prefer rhyme without meter, or even poetry with neither rhyme nor meter.

You appreciate the beautiful things in life--the joy of music, the color of leaves falling, the rhythm of a heartbeat. You see life itself as a series of little poems. The result (or is it the cause?) is that you are pensive and often melancholy. You enjoy the company of other people, but they find you unexcitable and depressing. Your problem is that regularly metric verse has been obsolete for a long time.

It's an interesting quiz, in that different people are getting different results. I am QBASIC, apparently. Robert on LlamaButchers is the French language.

On the other hand, melancholy isn't a word I would usually use to describe you.

On the third hand, having 3 kids will tire anyone out. So, maybe it fits better than I know.
