I tried to post a riddle I created onto the site but is gave me and error saying that the body "does not meet quality standards"

This is the full message:

This question body does not meet our quality standards. Please make sure that it completely describes your problem - including what you have already tried - and is written using proper grammar.

How can I fix my riddle so it meets these requirements? Thanks.

The post goes like this:

At first I heard it and thought i could soar like a bird!

And oh what i heard!

I’ll zoom so fast, my image will be blurred.

And now I see it, it’s flat as can be!

Oh woe is me.

And how lonely, just one single tree.

What is this riddle referring to?

  • $\begingroup$ I managed to resolve this by typing some junk sentences at the start and then editing them out. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Just a speculation: Perhaps the failure to capitalize the word "I" is part of the reason it was deemed low quality? $\endgroup$ Jun 13, 2016 at 16:26
  • $\begingroup$ I'd guess that it was a combination of the lowercase 'i', exclamation points and perhaps short sentences. I got this error when trying to post this question, which I then had to work around by using the questionable technique of putting the whole riddle in MathJax. $\endgroup$ Jun 19, 2016 at 10:15
