A wonderful game...

"I always liked 
nonsense verse and story poems.  
I always liked bright wordplay 
and marvelous imagery. (…) 
Poetry was always
 a wonderful game, 
the magical juggling
 of rhythm and rhyme 
and sense and sound."

 ~ Michael Patrick Hearn,
 in The Place My Words are Looking For

I've always liked nonsense verse and wordplay, too.  I have great admiration for any poet who can play that wonderful game -- juggle rhythm, rhyme, sense, and sound perfectly -- and come up with a magical result.
