next question...
what about poetry?
old poetry in IE langs was based on rhymes or syllabotonism(?)(the same
structure of stressde or long&short syllabes in one line(i don't know the
better term and dictionary is too far from my comp -_-'))

but many languages have rules of stress or of endings that makest such
poetry not possible, so how may look that poetry?
i know only japanese 'haiku'...
what about poetry in conlangs?
i know only tolkien's langs poetry (which is syllabotonic and with rhymes)
