Is there a metre in Dao De Jing?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

Poetry often contains a metre, meaning a certain patterns of phonetic harmony defines the sentence structure and the choosing of words.

I was wondering if this is also the case with Dao De Jing. I might have too difficult a time recognizing whether this is the case or not, as my Chinese is far from sufficient.

 

Thank you,

 

Immortality

Where ideas stop and start, and how the text flows, is subject to interpretation among Chinese language experts.
