Poetry: The One Place Where The Most Popular THE Is Scarce

Box Score: The Other Place Where The Most Popular THE Is Scarce
Wonderful example for this tag: just perfect to pick on “THE”!
Thanks very much!
i’m dense. what is the most popular THE? continue…
I am guessing that this refers to “the” as the most popular word in writing. If you were to count the most commonly used word in all of English literature, “the” would be at the top of the list. However, not quite as common as poetry, as not the most poetic word.
Googled for confirmation (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Most_common_words_in_English) and seems this is the point.
aha… thank you. i suppose “the end” would be the most popular. continue…
I love this thought. It made me smile! Grandly put!
