In this short article I would love to express to you what a poem is said to be. I asked one of my students one day “what is a poem”? She replied, a play on words that rhymes and sounds beautiful. In reality what it is defined as is a piece of writing in which the expression of feelings and ideas is given intesinty by particular attention to diction (sometimes involving Rhyme Rhythym, Inagery).
Another thing to keep in mind is that many countries have had talented poets and in the old days poetry discussed food a great deal, even in the Bible!
