Some say, "do not rhyme"
Some point out its beauty,
Which is right my dear?
Can you tell me certainly?

Rhyme comes with real ease
Without any extra efforts
But, many think I struggle
To rhyme all my fine poems

Many criticize with venom
As they could not tolerate
They make a cruel attack
Despising rhyming attitude

Rhyme gives charm and beauty
To a poem by finely adorning it
But, some call it very artificial
Saying it mars its very meaning

Now to rhyme or not to rhyme
Gives my mind great dilemma
Poem with no rhyme is possible
Let such a trend be capitalized.

No. No crime. Who cares. I rhyme.I don't rhyme. There is much to be said concerning whatever form of poetry you write.

Dear respected JerryPat2,

A concrete comment is yours
It has added to my cheers
In a way, wiped off my tears
And has removed my fears.

With best wishes, Thanking you, Yours truly,

Some of the most beautiful poetry in the world is rhyming poetry..many are still written in that form.

I personally have trouble with the form, perhaps it is the struggle to not have my rhymes seen as forced...attest the pop culture thought that rap lyrics are poetry?
But there are exceptions, even in that genre, Tupac being one.

Hurray for you for writing this poem, and although the poetry elite will frown, please continue to stand up for the form.

Dear respected ice,

Your comment is so cool
I feel greatly rejuvenated
Earlier I felt enervated
You have given a safe rule

I am delighted by your advice
Which has given me real hope
You say rhyme still has scope
Hearing this truth is nice

With best wishes, Thanking you, Yours truly,

I am very, very late, Poet
in welcoming you to Passions!
Please, let me belatedly welcome
you...and to all the rhyming
you might do!

Sunshine
