Main Question or Discussion Point
Most people prefer poems that rhyme. Why is this?
one might say that those poets that DO get something powerful out of rhymes are more accomplished than those poets who are unable to do so.
... I feel that rhyming poems are more pleasant because, in most cases, it seems like a song sung acopella (I don't think I spelled that correctly) and with feeling. While a non-rhyming poem sounds like you're reading a short story...
I agree with some of what was said in these three posts---maybe most of it.I also write poetry, and I find it much harder to write a poem that rhymes and still means something. I think poets like that -- poets like Yeats, Poe, and Blake, not to mention the Bard himself are extraordinary.
