Let’s count words. In poems.
Which type of words do writers use? And how often are they used in a poem? What message and feeling do they transport?
Let’s break the poem with its verses and stanzas structure into pieces and list the words in a clean and alphabetic order, just added by the number of appearance in the poem.
The original poem and the alphabetic list are connected through tiny threads. On those threats, each word is sticked on.
