★★★★★ What sort of poem should I post on Poet's Corner? ★★★★★
Any type of poem is fine to post on Poet's Corner, but if you need some inspiration or help some good beginning poem types are -
Free Form - Just write whatever you are feeling, there's no right way to write a free form poem
Haiku - The 5-7-5 poem. These poems use syllable counts for their structure. The first line consists of 5 syllables worth of words. The second line has 7 syllables and the last line has 5 syllables. For Example:
Poems can be fun
If you write them with your heart
So write some poems
Rhyming Couplet - This poem type has each line rhyme with the next line. For example:
Summer has come and with it the bees
Buzzing about in the shade of the trees
Odes - Praise something! Raise your glass! Fill your tankard! Put on your tri-cornered cap and harken back to the time of heroes.
Love Poems - Get in touch with your romantic or tragic side. Try to express how you feel in words.
There are many more poetry types but there really are no rules to how to write a poem. Write what you feel!
