Crossword Genius

Conversed about poetry (5)


I believe the answer is:


'poetry' is the definition.
(I know that poetry can be written as verse)

'conversed about' is the wordplay.
'about' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue (the clue goes around or about the answer).
'VERSE' can be found hidden inside 'conversed'.

(Other definitions for verse that I've seen before include "Section of a poem" , "Stanza; poetry" , "literary offering" , "Poems" , "Metrical text" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
