As you can see it's really not that hard

My little clutch of readers have a knack.
The metric lines are coming thick and fast

My words I tried to post inside the comment box,
And long I waited for the post to show
Though such a wait a trifle is compared to Job's
I grew impatient with the Google Method
And so the words below by e-mail choose to send:

A rue-well it should be for all who write
a comment on your or some other blog
that they in metre should express their mind.
Now here's a clue, or signpost if you will,
if numbers 'neath a hymn you find that are
10.10.10 or some number made of five
that hymn may suit your sweet intent to sing
your metred feet of verse, and so we sing
"Abide with me, fast falls the eventide"
