Vallerie, don't let despair choose your words unless its what you're writing about! You could have re-titled this verse 'I've got this Site on Poetry right...' and not only been right, but rather forthright. Practise makes poetry perfect, lots. Poetry is hidden within the poet and moves into the poet's words - if you keep them simple without too much structure. Eg:
rhyme, rhythm and metre
are the poet’s meat and drink
but some let structure defeat
the expression of simple words.
