THE CHAOS by Dr. Gerard Nolst Trenité (1870-1946)

Good stough, but I couldn't get all the weigh threw it.

Brilliant congeries! May our language never languish.
Regarding the first line of the last quatrain:
'Finally' nor 'which' rhymes with 'enough' and if no ambiguity was intended, why not in the second line string add 'trough?'
Fun rare and well done, GVdL.

One of my favorite poems. I keep providing links to it to friends and acquaintances when the occasion arises.
