Classification by length

Will diminish strength
For words counted
Lose their bounty

Phrases make meaning
Some ... quite streaming
Others are short and sweet
Yet ... still retain their beat

It is something which comes
By the way the words run ...
And, then, at a certain joint ...
You know it has made its point
