It has taken me days to get this far: Last Thursday, the Poetry Daily website featured "The Ensemble," by Floyd Skloot.

Reading it, I felt my mouth fill with delicious words, with sounds that rolled around my teeth and over my tongue. I laughed in the middle.

I didn't even notice the rhyme scheme until the last two lines. I read the poem again and was even more impressed by the way Mr. Skloot kept the nature, the flavor of the poem genuine while keeping to his rhymes.

A poem I wish I had written. A poem to savor.
