Abstract: Software is it Poetry or Prose? It is part Poetry, part Prose. But it has much more in common with both forms of natural language, than usually admitted: software concepts, rather than defined by syntactic oriented computer programming languages, are characterized by the semantics of natural language. This paper exploits these similarities in a two-way sense. In one way the software perspective may be relevant to the analysis of natural language forms, such as poems. In the other way round, as its central message, this paper uses properties of both Poetry and Prose to facilitate a deeper understanding of highest-level software abstractions.
