By heart

Plain verse - anapestic

The one wicked by heart will delight in the strife.
The one perfect by heart will delight in the peace.
So the mouth of the wicked makes havoc in life.
And the mouth of the perfect puts conflicts to ease.

The one split in his heart will be split in his mouth.
The one sound in his heart will make merry reports.
The one wicked stirs up in east, west, north and south.
The one perfect will go for God given exports.

The lines of what I call the plain verse may have different number of foots and there might be different number of lines in the verse, but the lines are uniform with each other and so are the verses. This poem of mine is four footed, so it is called a tetrameter, and the verses are of four lines, so the verses are called quatrains. In poetry, the plain verse is maybe the most common form. The plain verse is nice to learn in the beginning when learning to write poetry, since writing plain verses is not that difficult.

The meter of this poem is anapestic, which means two unstressed syllables are followed by a stressed.

The message of this poem is taken from the Proverbs in the Bible. So the poem is an allusion.
