What is Poetry?
Basic poetry is in verse form, called a stanza, made up of meter created by feet. The amount of lines in a stanza deciphers the type of poem that is written. There can be more than one stanza to a poem and then, for effect, you could throw in a chorus and a refrain.
Take a look at our Poetry Types Glossary and you will find an explanation for all sections of poetry.
Why don't you try writing a poem and enter it into one of our Poetry Competitions.
