What Rhymes With Hell

What Rhymes With Hell – Recently, while I was in my office, I came across this interesting advertisement in Sun Microsystems magazine. The ad doesn’t directly name hardware giant Dell, but the context is more explicit: “Considering how hot and slow our competitor’s servers are, it’s no surprise that their name rhymes with hell.” To view the full size version of the ad, click on the image below.

The ad compares the Sun Fire X4100 to the Dell PowerEdge 6850. The first is 50 percent faster, one-quarter the size of 1U, consumes about one-third the power and less than half the price of the other. When the ad ran, Sun

What Rhymes With Hell

Sun Microsystems is comparing the Sun Fire X4100 with two AMD Opteron Model 280 processors and the Dell PE6850 with four Intel Xeon processors. The ad tells readers to “Check out our awesome new industry standard x64 servers.” A web address in the ad – sun.com/better – now redirects to a page on Oracle.com about the acquisition of Sun Microsystems.

Another ad we found also took a dig at Dell, but not quite as viciously. The ad pictured below describes the Sun X4100 as 150 percent better than the Dell PE6850. It claims the solar system is 50 percent faster and 66 percent more energy efficient.

As far as I’m concerned, it’s one of the gems, one of the masterpieces of the last 20th century. This is not an irrelevant word. I’m sure there are more, but (because I spend more time writing than reading) I don’t know about them (unless other readers tell me).

First, on poetry, then I’ll take a closer look at that. This song is number 20 in Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s book

Furry Friday, Aug. 23 — Rhymes With Orange

The expressive power of rhyme is something that many free verse poets either don’t have, don’t want to have, or lack (in my opinion) the talent to feel. But there are poets who write in this style

Get it and Ferlinghetti is one of them. The above poem is rich in end verses and internal verses, and is not free verse.

It adds expressive power and underlines the meaning of the song. This makes the song even more memorable. Here is the same song. I’ve highlighted the last verses and the inner verses that I find most important. The colors are of no importance except that the verses are as colourful.

Especially in free verse. Rhyme poetry can also use internal rhyme, but the advantage that free verse offers is the freedom of its line length. This freedom allows a poet like Ferlinghetti to place words exactly where he wants them.

My Odd Little Folk

In a rhyming poem, if Ferlinghetti wanted to have these stanzas as the final stanzas, he would probably have to skip a few syllables. and it comes to mind

Little secret (about which I will tell you). The rhymed verse is hidden in “free verse” poetry.

In terms of iambic rhythm, this poem is more regular than Keats! I read lines 1, 5, 7, 10 and 11 as iambic pentameter. And I read lines 3, 4, 8 and 9 as iambic tetrameter. Rows 2 and 6 are Alexandrine (6 foot lines instead of 5 foot lines). The red color represents a trochic leg. Blue represents an anapestic type leg and green would be a female end (exactly like all my scans). I chose to scan the last line as iambic meter. (It’s not the only way to scan lines, but it shows what matters to me.)

There are “destroyers” metrics. And many young poets would do well to learn from him. The techniques of traditional poetry are still available to all poets, even those writing free verse. They are not excommunicated – although one may question whether Ferlinghetti’s poetry is really “free verse”.

Until the end of the song. Other rhymes find their partners in either two or three lines,

An excellent touch. (The alliteration underscores the moment the boy sees something other than candy, better than candy, and

There are grams. The effect is of framing as well as of perfection. Rhyme subconsciously reinforces the ending of the poem, especially repeated

And that’s what’s missing in so much free verse—the subtle parallelism of rhyme, rhyme, and meaning.

The very first line reminds us of innocence and simplicity. What could be better than a Penny Candy Store? And what is al? It probably refers to one of New York City Transit’s elevated subway lines, but it may also refer to Chicago’s “L”, also called “the L” (by some Chicagoans). If I were a bettor, I’d put my money on New York. Lawrence Ferlinghetti was born in Yonkers (just north of New York City) and so (one would expect) would have been familiar with the New York City subway system in childhood, (though this makes the poem autobiographical.)

On the other hand, although the title of the book seems to locate the poem in New York City, some of the early poems locate the speaker in California. Furthermore, Ferlinghetti tells us that the title of the book is taken from Henry Miller.

, making the title more of an idea than a place. I noticed that Chicago readers think Ferlinghetti refers to the “L” in Chicago, while New York readers think it’s New York.

To make matters worse, there was more than one “AL” in New York. There’s the Ninth Avenue El, there’s the El station that was demolished in 1940 (but which Ferlinghetti would have known about), and then there’s the Jamaica Avenue El in Richmond Hill, Queens. To me, the demolished AL Station seems a likely candidate; But it does not matter. If Ferlinghetti wanted us to know, he could have told us. As of the time of this writing, he is still around.

Three The Hard Way

Is this jellybean glowing in the semi-darkness? But it’s a bit different “unrealistic” in the details. So I read it: The poet is a boy when he goes to the Penny Candy Store. Basically, for that, there are Glowing Jellybeans, Licorice Sticks, Tootsie Rolls, and O Boy Gum. Jelly shines like a beacon. But another kind of reality (and the United Nations)

, moves through the “reality” of the boy like a hunter, accompanied by tempting jellybeans, licorice sticks and “Oh Boy Gum”.

… Ferlinghetti’s choice of candy is not a mistake. That’s candy for a boy. It’s the thing that makes a boy say, oh boy…

But unreality will not delay; And there’s more to dying than just leaves. The boy’s reality, his Pennycondister is also dying. The sun, and everything it represented to the boy, has been blown away by the wind – and here

It is much more than just a literal wind. Something else is about to disturb the boy’s reality – and unreality:

Do I need to say anything more? Ferlinghetti says it best, and I can’t think of any guy who hasn’t had the same experience, the same breath-taking, heart-stopping,

Example when we see “a girl” for the first time. she ran in and she was taking in

The boy, until this moment, didn’t know. Her hair, the rain that washed the leaves and blotted out the sun, and her breasts. And what is the breath in the small room? her breasts? His? small room? Where are the jellybeans? Licorice, Tootsie Rolls or “Oh Boy” Gun? They’re gone, like everyone else. Went

The song takes us outside the Penny Candy Store. No need to say much. Where a lesser poet would have stopped at the shop, and told us more than the details, Ferlinghetti’s touch is exquisite – genius. we know. the boy in love with anne is gone

, the sudden bottomless and infinitely undefined beauty of a girl. The Penny Candy Store, with all its childish realness, is gone. Outside, the falling leaves shout:

I wrote “Let Poetry Die” and Hey, David Orr! As articles have written, and I can’t help but add this excerpt from Ferlinghetti’s poem:
