    I think a train of thought can be rhythmic itself, so we shouldn't over exert on rhyming as it loses the true essence of a poem... Having said that many masters have crafted such masterpiece poems that have everything what is required technically and nothing is lost…

    I am not a master just a learner… so if any one would please read few of my poems and guide me to get better in this learning process…

    Do you think rhymes are important in a poem? I think they are, but sometimes they are not too easy to find the right words, so I think to keep a poem nature is important too. Our original ideas might be destroyed if fill in some meaningless words.

    Hi, I am new to PoemHunter. I am pretty much a beginner. I have written 4 poems. I would appreciate some constructive criticism especially on 'The Forbidden Well'. Thanks

    I thought I'd try something a little different to my usual stuff, so I'm putting in some narrative poems to see how they go. Hope you like them.

    Relating how to write a correct sonnet at nowadays. Who can tell this exactly what should be followed or in what forms must be used? There are many forms have been talked in the past. I know it consists totally 14 lines A(4,4,4,2): B(4,4,2,2,2) or C(8,6) and rhymes mostly uses B type abba abba + cd, cd, cd (=14 lines) . But, there are really many styles were used in the past centuries. It nearly no fixed regulation at all. The B style is more popular until now.
    I want to hear your opinion....
