What Is A Good Poem? - Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet
When I read a poem
I look to see
Whether the verse
Appeals to me.
Is there a rhyme?
Do the lines scan?
Will it make sense
To every woman or man?
Is the poem short?
Or is it too long?
Is it split into verses?
Does it sing like a song?
Is the initial letter of each line
A Capital Letter or Small?
Are the questions I ask of myself
When reviewing them all.
For a Poem to be good,
It must give pleasure,
And be wanted to be read again,
By All at their leisure.
