Em Dash Worksht-1
Name of Poem
by Author Name
Text of the poem goes here
sample text follows here
A half-moon and necklace of stars
shimmer above the Bridge
as I walk the greens
of a golf course at Land’s End,
buffeted by winds
cleaving the vortex where
the Golden Gate enters the sea.
Benedicty text comes in here with em dashes:
Two perfectly juicy white peaches per day including one for a fresh Bellini
Times two months
Times—if luck holds and water flows and orchards grow—twenty years
Slightly expanded if compromise includes yellows, freestones, donuts
Really quite finite
test conclusion: the em dash copies and pastes ok from the orig. MSWord docx on file
in my computer file of accepted documents.
and the poem continues down to here
Further testing on 4-18-20
“Has anything changed?” he asked on 4-18. The curly quotes still look curly he noticed. And – then he inserted a dash, directly from the keyboard, and he noticed that the Word program converted the dash like this – to a longer em dash a second after typing it. Let me put this text up on a Weebly template, he reasoned, and see how the copy and paste function transfers.
And so, he did it.
And just above is the copied text; the em dash copied as shown on his MSWord docx, but not as long as the em dashes in the Benedicty poem above. So what is the difference? he wondered.
