"I Want the Certainty of Love in Another Language" by Christie Ann Reynolds, a teacher of science and writing at Metropolitan Montessori School in New York City, was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on January 27, 2014. A link to the poem, including the poet's notes, may be found here:
The poem is presented in twenty-one lines of free verse, but free verse of an usual kind. There are some lines that rhyme, and some that nearly rhyme:
The second line ends with "rose," the third line with "exploded." These nearly rhyme.
The sixth, seventh, eighth, and tenth lines carry an "oo" sound: shoot / through / soon / you moved. The eleventh line is a near rhyme with these, ending in "mouth."
The seventh and eighth lines rhyme, ending with "through me" and "to be" respectively.
The fourteenth and fifteenth lines nearly rhyme, ending in "day" and "saying" respectively.
Finally, the nineteenth and twenty-first lines rhyme, ending with "deer" and "fear" respectively.
