I hope this is on topic here.
I am revising an original poem. No, I am not posting it or asking for a critique. I am intentionally using old-fashioned language. I would like to know if the concept of parallelism applies to 'abnormal' contractions (i.e. words contracted for rhythmic purposes).
A certain line could be written:
Ne'er woven before
or: Ne'er wov'n here before
Do guidelines exist for such situations? Must I contract woven because I contracted a similar word never?
