Today's Prompt is Blank Verse

Blank Verse, of varying degrees of regularity, has been used quite frequently throughout the 20th century in original verse and in translations of narrative verse.  It is a type of poetry, distinguished by having a regular meter, but no rhyme. In English, the meter most commonly used with blank verse has been iambic pentameter (as used in Shakespearean plays). Any way you feel it , just have fun !! Ours is ...

untouched by the weight of the world
