SN.1.60. Kavisutta ("A Poet")

Saṁyutta Nikāya ("The Linked Discourses")

“What’s the basis of verses?
What’s their detailed expression?
What do verses depend upon?
What underlies verses?”

“Metre is the basis of verses.
Syllables are their detailed expression.
Verses depend on names.
A poet underlies verses.”
