Best Poetry. (rhyme or not?)

A Poem by Keith
"

Ok, I am having a crack at this too, so here's my 2c worth.

"
Paint a picture
tell a story,
share your sorrow
howl your glory.

Take me where
I've never been,
show me sights
as yet unseen.

Make me laugh
Or make me cry,
if really sad
my tears I'll dry.

Lift my spirit
stir my soul,
arouse my senses
make me whole

These things I seek
in  reading time,
for me its bonus 
with a rhyme.

Maximum impact in a minimum of words. I especially like the first stanza with its "howl your glory" line. I am prejudiced in favor of rhymed poems and think this would have somewhat lesser appeal if it weren't rhymed. Well done.

Whatever fits your fancy at the moment is how I go with it...rhyme no rhyme...I write it just the way it comes out...if you feel the verse gets too restrictive...then go all out free verse...I get a feel for a rhyme - but at times that changes in mid drift...and go completely a different direction...or you can have at it more...leaves you with a headache...but again totally up to you the writer...

I like rhyme, but need a poem to say something. This covered both points. Great job.

"share your sorrow
howl your glory." -- Nice!

Thank you so much DB, I appreciate you dropping in.
I like this. I am one for rhyme and meter myself as if no one knew. It has long been my premise that music and meter and rhyme are interlinked In such a way. It is the reason we remember song lyrics But not speeches. Surely a different part of the brain controls music and the arts.

I had no doubt where you sat on this matter Tate. I totally agree with you premise there.
Really good metered rhymed verse, Keith, and your poem sings because of it. Poets over the centuries have used meter and rhyme to make their poems lyrical - nothing wrong with it unless you want to get published in "The New Yorker" and good luck with that! lol This is an upbeat poem that makes you feel good to read it. Great job!
