Now that you've read some Shakespeare, who wrote in iambic pentameter, you're ready to explore other types of poetry. Poetry is defined as "the art of rhythmical composition, written or spoken, for exciting pleasure by beautiful, imaginative, or elevated thoughts." Wikipedia says this about poetry:
    "Poetry is an art form and a type of literature. Poetry uses the quality of words, including their length and sound, to be artistic as well as the meanings of the words. Poetry can take many forms, and is used to describe many things. It can make sense or be nonsense, it can rhyme or not, and it can be as small as a few words, or as long as a book. It takes many shapes and sizes, it can be serious, or it can be funny."

Sounds cool. Let's get to know some poetry!
