Letter "P" » pentameters
«A reader who quarrels with postulates, who dislikes Hamlet because he does not believe that there are ghosts or that people speak in pentameters, clearly has no business in literature.

«In the hexameter rises the fountain's silvery column; / In the pentameter aye falling in melody back.»
