an extraordinary worldwide next generation
In their injuries
Blessing every word, beauty
Of our dear repose.
Loving thee behold
The purple in thy soul’s thought
That I think is out.
Those boughs which thou dost common
Grow; resembling strong that every
Thing they are – an extraordinary
Worldwide next generation
Next my love is enough.
1 – 2/17/12 composed with jGnoetry on a Kindle
2 – 2/18/12 composed with jGnoetry by an 8-year old test subject
3 – 2/20/12 composed with jGnoetry “free verse” form.
All verses: default language model (80% Shakespeare Sonnets, 10% Tzara, 10% Lessig)
1. Just for kicks I tried out jGnoetry on my old lady’s first-generation Kindle… it was a massive pain in the neck to move between the Generate button and the word buttons (it kept scrolling through the upper frame), but I was gratified to see that it actually worked otherwise.
2. I watched an 8-year-old kid try out jGnoetry on the web, just to make sure the interface was easy to use. I made “click per word” instead of “mouseover” the default because the kid previously had problems with the mouseover version.
3. I implemented random line lengths for eRoGK7. For example you can do a template like
[3-9s] [n] [3-9s] [n] [3-9s] [n] [3-9s] [n] [3-9s]
which will give you between 3 and 9 syllables per line, inclusive.
Select the “Free Verse” form to see this. The exact number is determined when you generate the first poem.
(You can also do a plain [3s][n] to create 3-syllable lines, btw, if you don’t want to write out [s] [s] [s] [n] manually.)
This doesn’t quite get you to one-sentence-per-line, though; I need to implement some kind of template code for punctuation. (or, to allow punctuation to be placed in with the template codes.) Maybe one of these days.
