It may not seem evident that meter is important in prose as it is in poetry, but it is... it's just more subtle.

Boggle. Of course it is! Um. I have a horrid time with meter in poetry. I lay the blame on having a non-metered language as a mother tongue. But the meter of prose...oh, yes. Do you mean to say that many people do not realize this?

Am going back to pondering the "is trinker really as good an editor as some people have said, for those sorts of things?" question.
