Thank you for reading my post. Yes, I agree there are really no rules and free verse is fine. Perhaps I was being a bit finicky but in "Stones" there is a rhyme and I simply found the fifth line difficult to articulate when reading out loud. Perhaps I'd have to be an actress to make it work. I might add that I love reading poetry out loud whether it be free verse or rhyming verse, so perhaps I'm a bit more quirky than another person if I can't do it right. I just hope JPK wasn't hurt by what I said, although I sincerely believe it is better to raise interest than to be ignored. Have a nice day!
