An ars poetica             [limerick]

When you rhyme for the pleasures of rhyming
or you chime for the music of chiming
can the meaning be trivial
if the spirit's convivial?
were perfection the seduction of timing?

I've tried a couple forms of this poem, and cannot entirely decide which I prefer. A slightly differing version can be seen here. Anecdotally, the initial form of it was that seen here.
