Types of Poems

When we started we discussed the various forms of poetry, below are some examples.

HAIKU

The sun shone outside
We met in the sparse filled room
To hear fine poems.

FIBS

I
Joined
This group
So that we
Could read Poetry

LIMERICK

The poetry Group came to pass
Hoping it would show it’s high class
Once a month they did meet
And sat down in their seat
Hoping it won’t be a farce

IAMBIC PENTAMETER

At last the poetry group was gathered here
To listen to those poems both old and new
To some the verses read were held most dear
Hoping we give the respect they are due

HEPTAMETER SPLIT OVER TWO LINES

We meet just once in every month
To hear some likely rhymes,
Told by those with the same love
Of poems through the times.

THE WAY I (Andy Brister) WRITE (MOSTLY)

Well at last it was here, I have been
waiting, a year for this. Poetry is important
to me. I hope it has the same importance to
others, in the newly formed group.
