Instructions: The Cyberspace Poet will allow up to 5000 of your own phrases to
compose poetry. She already has three sets of phrases in the "Choose the kind of poetry" options below. These have less than 50 phrases each. By choosing one, you can
compose as many different stanzas, with any number of lines per stanza you
want. Some of the poetry may even make sense, if she's having a good day. You
can highlight parts of the poem and copy them by clicking the right mouse button
(Windows) or cmd-C On
a Mac; see comments at the end of this page.
Now you can either skip the next instructions and start consulting the Cyberspace Poet (scroll down), or keep reading for more details.
To use your own phrases, or some of the ones in the three
options, simply paste or type them into the second large text area for phrases.
and hit the ENTER or RETURN key at the end of each
phrase (including the title -- first line, and
including the last phrase)
. You must
have at least one phrase after the title. Just click on the button "Use
phrases below for Your Poetry (option 4)", choose the "Your Poetry" option, click
on the "Make Poetry" button, and compose poetry with your own
phrases. You can highlight the phrases, copy them to a text word
processor, and save the text file so that you can use them another day.
Have fun, but beware; if the Cyberspace Poet is having a difficult day, some of the poetry can make a Vogon weep in anguish.
Use the right mouse button to access
undo, cut, copy, paste, delete, select all menu for any textbox. You must
highlight the part you want to undo etc. first. After clicking the
right mouse button it usually takes several seconds before the floating menu appears.
