Our conversion process removes blank lines so be extra careful when formatting poetry.

Use one asterisk to denote large spaces in the text or text separated by one single decorative character.

Repetitive text must also be separated by three asterisks (* * *) or all but the first instance will be removed. Make sure to include a space between each asterisk. [Link: When to Use Asterisks]


Proofed Example:

He gives his harness bells a shake

To ask if there is some mistake

The only other sound’s the sweep

Of easy wind and downy flake


The woods are lovely, dark and deep,

But I have promises to keep,

And miles to go before I sleep, * * *

And miles to go before I sleep
