I won't let Block-Ed frustrate me I'll practice 'til I'm proficient So here's a bit of poetry to see if I've learned sufficient... I see that Sheryl at Your Daily Word Prompt is having her trials switching to the new Block editor, too. Her word for today is FRUSTRATE.
A CHOICE by Edgar Guest Sure, they get stubborn at times; they worry and fret us a lot, but I'd rather be crossed by a glad little boy and frequently worried than not. There are hours when they get on my nerves and set my poor brain all a-whirl, but I'd rather be troubled that way than to be the man who has no little girl. There are time's they're a nuisance, that's true with all of their racket and noise, but I'd rather my personal pleasures be lost than to give up my girls and my boys. Not always they're perfectly good; there are times when they're wilfully bad but I'd rather be worried by youngsters of mine than lonely and childless and sad. So I try to be patient and calm whenever they're having their fling, for the sum of their laughter and love is more than the worry they bring. And each night when sweet peace settles down and I see them asleep in their cot, I chuckle and say: "They upset me today, but I'd rather be that way than not."

Selecting the Verse block and writing poetry works better with this editor, since single line spacing is automatic; I don’t have to hit Shift + Enter to get that, like I would otherwise. On the other hand, I now have to count Categories & Tags to be sure I don’t exceed the WordPress limit of fifteen. And poetry is automatically italicized.
PS: Now that this is posted I see I’m not so proficient after all! 😦
Now, how to fix it!
