Curious. Why are you stopping Grammar of Poetry early?

I did not feel the "euphemism" lesson was entirely appropriate for this student right now. Maybe later. We will continue to review some of what we have already covered.

(On the other hand, we found the "refrain" and "oxymoron lessons really fun. We read Riley's "Little Orphant Annir" as an example of refrain.)

Ah, yes. We will skip euphemism as well. Thanks for the 'heads up'. :)
