We Loathe "O" and Like "I" Sounds?

Loathe or Like
by Rachel Hoyt

Sometimes I moan,
Bold as green mold,
Play the joke who's broke,
A flake the cold doled,
A groan with no tone - 

Sometimes I fly,
Ride the wind's tide,
From a sip of fine wine,
A nice smooth wide stride,
A sigh for by and by.

This study says "I" sounds are easy to like
and "O" sounds probe your ears like a spike.

Rhyming or not, I would like a lot to hear the thoughts my words brought...
