Free verse is usually very carefully crafted and structured. When writing free verse, I’m very much led by the sounds of the words – with alliteration and assonance – as well as using internal rhymes and half rhymes. When I’m writing a poem, it’s all about the conjunction between the meaning – the thing I’m trying to say – and the music, the sound. Both are happening at once, informing each other. BRIAN MOSES: Free verse isn’t just prose that’s been chopped up on the page. In my workshops I say that a free verse poem must look like a poem on the page right from the start because then it makes it much easier to inject a rhythm into it.
It tends to be – if I can be stereotypical about it – the nonreading boys who will switch on to my performance at that point. I get ‘cred’ by doing rap! A lot of libraries have said they like the raps because they can turn the less literary boys or girls on to them because they’ve got that popular music form and association that children can identify with. At my readings I win certain children with the raps, and having caught them I’ll try and get them to listen to something like ‘The Selky Bride’, warning them in advance that it’s a slower and sadder piece, and that like the raps, it tells a story, but in a slightly different way.
With poems like ‘Stars’, I use a combination of short and long lines. It’s not always deliberate or conscious, I instinctively write them that way. With long lines I become more rhythmic, then the short lines are more staccato. A poet I enjoyed as a late teenager was the Greek poet Alexis Lickyard. All the internal rhymes in my poetry are influenced by him – as well as the attempt for elegance, style, grace, clarity, and the music of the language – all stem from him. In the last long verse, I’m referring to stars as people – icons who guide us, inspire us – and it’s given extra punch with the alliteration in ‘brightest and best’.
