Examples from own works

Did you ever think of having links or even (as this would be much more fun) a page where you define (with examples) the various forms/styles of poetry. Using your own work would be the most interesting - since I seem to read it more than the classical poets - probably because they are all dead and can't provide comment...

But all those incredibly long and difficult to pronounce words - defined with examples...

Little quiz at the end would be good too but that is asking too much.

PS. I changed the title of this post - although I was trying to be perhaps "cute" - I could never earn a living as a comedian and I thought it sounded rather unkind when I reread it. This is not what I meant. I really think you guys are great teachers and I really have learned a lot from you - mostly how much you love and appreciate the English language.

ok - it wasn't the best idea - I grant you...:-) But think how easy it would be for us!
