I love poetry for all it’s worth
The words come easier for some
For others, they must search the earth
To find the perfect rhyme.

For others, meaning must be obvious
While some fancy the more obscure
Searching out the almost curious
Phrases that speak meaning for sure

Whether you love the rhyming word
Or prefer a freer verse
All poetry is lovelier heard
When read by one immersed

    A nice blend of rhyme and non-rhyming discourse. I think you may have meant ‘immersed’ in the last line.

    You’ve brought up a vital point. Free verse is easier to write for those who struggle against rigid poetic structures. I find such constraints an enjoyable challenge because it forces me to reconsider how to convey my intended meaning.

    Indeed I did, thank you. Auto Correct can be ones nemesis. I am glad you enjoyed it. Thank you

    I prefer the more rigid poetic structures for the challenge they present as well.
