What is better rhyming or free form poetry?

Whether you like a free form style of poetry or a more traditional rhyming variety of poetry is a matter of personal choice. Traditional rhyming poetry is often viewed as very stuffy and formal by many people. It is also seen as something that is more forced in the writing although that isn’t so with good rhyming poetry. A person who writes a lot of rhyming poetry develops a knack for it and the rhymes flow freely.That stereotypical image of poetry is what turns many people away from that style and all styles of poetry though and they often don’t give it a chance. There are many poets and many works. There is something to please anyone. Once a more free verse became another style of accepted poetry many have turned to that style of poetry. It does read more naturally, as if someone was speaking. If you look back at children’s books though, many of the most loved books with a rhythm are poetry books written in rhyme. Many modern lyrics are also rhyming poetry when read and not sung. There are so many styles and forms of poetry within each group. Poetry is much more than those two simple types. All forms of poetry take a certain amount of skill to write. That includes both rhyming and the less formal free forms of poetry. One style of poetry is not better is not better than the other. It is up to the reader to choose what they like. But reading a good poet or poem, versus a bad poet or poem can make a big difference in how each style is viewed. Mama Nono
