Aha! Now we see it as it is meant to be presented. Both versions say a good deal. Even better done!
Thanks! I tried to get the formatting to work on the GFIC site, but it just wouldn't. Even better, I think, would be if I could get two columns, without the tables, and maybe align one left and one right. But I just don't know HTML well enough to pull that off, and it's tough, even in a word processor, to get a left and a right alignment on the same line.

I liked this. The table-format was different, but I think it achieved your purposes. I really thought the side-by-side comparison of the two poems was wonderful, really giving the proverbial two sides of the story in an effective and charming manner.
Thanks! Ideally, there'd be two separate columns, with none of those tabley lines obscuring the way, but I am unversed in the lore of computers, and a table was better than no table.

This is such a unique way to present a poem! It does make it much more parallel presented this way, almost like a table of "pros and cons".
And the last three lines are so poignant!
I've always been fascinated by the visual aspects of printed poetry and how they can encourage the reader to explore it in different ways (do you read the sections up and down, or across from each other?).
