Thank you!
The following works, except:
- There’s too much space (2 lines?) within the frame before the poem.
- I’d like to insert some space below the float, spaceafter doesn’t work.


\definefloat[poem]
\setupfloat[poem][
  location=left, % doesn’t work
  width=0.33\textwidth,
  background=color,backgroundcolor=cyan,
  spaceafter=1em, % doesn’t work
]
\setupcaption[poem][
  location=none,
  number=no,
]

\starttext

\dorecurse{2}{\input knuth}
\startplacefloat[poem][location=left,]%
\framedtext[
  frame=off,
  width=fit,
  style=\tt,
  %background=color,backgroundcolor=yellow,
]{%
\startlines%
lichtung

manche meinen
lechts und rinks
kann man nicht
velwechsern.
werch ein illtum!
\wordright{ernst jandl}
\stoplines
}
\stopplacefloat
\dorecurse{2}{\input knuth}

\stoptext



Grüßlinge, Hraban
