Working on a collection of poetry, I find that I must also consider the issue of repetition. For example, a line may work well in more than one poem, but it must be sacrificed in all other instances (regardless of whether it is differently expressed) in order to preserve its impact (in that instance where it is best used) within the collection as a whole.
