Writing Poems - Poem by Jesus James Llorico

'I have read so many poems
that I feel I am obliged
to write a few suggestions
on how to write poems

writing poems needs preparation
it takes time, you have to read
then rewrite many many times
to create a good one

I, for one is comfortable
writing in classical form
I prefer poems with rules
for me this is real poetry

I'm not against free verse
for I wrote a few myself
but before I publish it
I always ask for an opinion

For I read so many free verse
that is absolute rubbish
they think in one sitting
they can make a good poem

Its much better to ask someone
who could give suggestions
and constructive criticism
this is the road to real poetry

preparation and inspiration
and reading from the masters
of poetry, this for me is the
way to excel in writing poems.'

    How many sittings did this one take?
    I'd say your obligation has been met, except you forgot to tell folks to make sure their poem is interesting, above-all.
