Crossword Genius

Conversed about poetry (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

verse

'poetry' is the definition.
(synonyms)

'conversed about' is the wordplay.
'about' indicates a hidden word (the clue goes around or about the answer).
'VERSE' is hidden within '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.
