What exactly makes a poem … a poem? Poets themselves have struggled with this question, often using metaphors to approximate a definition. Is a poem a little machine? A firework? An echo? A dream? Melissa Kovacs shares three recognizable characteristics of most poetry.

my classmate in middle school when asked to create and read his poem in front of the class, stood quiet for a moment then said, "that was my poem, titled 'Quiet'."

Edit: the teacher told him to write an actual poem and perform again 😂

By the way this is my most successful youtube comment ever haha

The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep,
And poems to write before I sleep

I've always liked Emily Dickinson's definition: "If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry."

I have a guit-tar
It's a 6 string
but I have a problem
I can't play the thing

I tried to play it
just the other day
the cat keeled over
my friends ran away

the cops pulled up
they pulled out their guns
saying put up your hands
or it won't be fun

I strummed a few chords
with the amp up high
ears plugged weapons down
cops went bye bye

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'll go to bed
