Rhyme and Meter

Rhyme and Meter

A Poem by predictablepoets

What's in a poem?

Let’s establish Rhyme,
And use Anapestic Meter.
Observe the Metric Pattern,
Make words sound much sweeter.

A sonnet needs fourteen lines,
First four are the topic.
An a-b-a-b pattern,
May be too myopic.

Should it be a narrative?
Or perhaps a Verse Fable?
Would Jeffers give approval?
Or would he not be able?

A painting based off language,
A certain state of mind.
The lines are becoming too wordy.
The set up too confined.

But what about the meaning,
Isn’t that the heart?
So long as the compositions correct,
They'll say it’s a work of art.
