III. Write A Poem

Introduction

   The most important steps in writing a poem are to decide what you want to write about; then, selecting the form or style of poetry you want to compose your poem in.

   First: To help you accomplish this, carefully study the details of each form below and how that form is designed to work, giving each one careful consideration, concentrating on the form you think best suits you and your topic.

   Second: Carefully study the details of each form below and how that form is designed to work, giving each one careful consideration, concentrating on the form you think best suits you and your topic.

   Then, pick the form you feel will best fit what you'd like to say with your poem, in the way you wish to express it. Study the chosen form's stipulated details and follow the rules in their exactness.

   Here is a very important admonishment for beginner and experienced, alike: Allow yourself to master a form it the way it's meant to be before varying it in any manner, so you'll not develop poor, hard to break, habits and become a poorly accomplished poet.

   Remember, the craft of poetry is an art, and every master artist learned the basics of their art before branching out into their own styles.
