Children at school
think there’s a rule
that rhyming is needed
or poetry impeded
but this need not be true
it is actually up to you
although many plan
for the reading to scan
but as you can see
here this proved much too hard for me
The rules of haiku:
Three lines – five, seven and five.
Simplistic beauty.
Perhaps the most popular poem of time,
Is the one where bits need to rhyme.
Then a sudden brake,
in the rhythm does take,
us to a usually amusing punchline.
Other poems have
it seems
no forced pattern or structure
flow and cease
and start again
seemingly in random scatterings
perhaps to empathise thought,
or for dramatic effect,
or ifthe
in thesameway
