Rhythm of the Poem Is there a dominant rhythm? Does it dance, frolic, meander, slither, or march? Is it  conversational, like a scene from a drama? Is it a droning monologue, as found in a journal,  diary, or confessional? Does the rhythm relate to the prevalent theme of the poem? Or does it seem at odds  with the theme? Does the rhythm increase or decrease in speed, as does Ezra Pound's Hugh Selwyn  Mauberley: Life and Contacts? Why? Use of the Senses in the Poem Does the poem stress sense impressions — for example, taste, touch, smell, sound,  or sight? Are these impressions pleasant, unpleasant, or neutral? Does the poet concentrate on a single sense or a burst of sensation, as in Wallace  Stevens's "Peter Quince at the Clavier" or Elizabeth Bishop's "The Fish"? Imagery in the Poem
