What form do you like the most?

What 'form' do you like the most and why? ('Form' being any format, meter or even figure of speech).

I prefer anything that is metric. Trochaic feet are great to impart a sense of urgency. I've never written in dactyls, but they sound great.
But to be specific, Terza Rima and Villanelle are great.

Haiku, Tanka, Climbing Rhyme, Bref Double.

I seem to like poetry formats from other languages. Haiku and Tanka from Japan, Climbing Rhyme from Burma, Bref Double from France! :)

The various forms of sonnets. I prefer the simple english sonnet written in iambic tetrameter

hmmmm, that's a toughie, like asking which is your fav kid...I'd have to go with Poetcipers and vote for old reliable Sonnet (English), but I prefer iambic pentameter because it's less sing-songy and more flexible (same reason I prefer English to Italian sonnet).  Though I tend to mix it up at the end because I think ending with rhyming couplets is a bit too neat...
