I doubt that you could write true syllabic verse, Po, especially in long lines. You would put in some sort of rhythmic pulse by instinct. If Tchaikovsky had written with a tone row, how would the music sound?

But the lines in your posted poem were so long that I didn't even try to count them. The chopped-up display was too annoying.
