I find that writing poetry that rhymes is easier for me than poems that don't :) many people say that they find non-rhyming poems too easy. I just find them more popular: I mean, look at all the famous poets: Maya Angelou, Shakespeare, Robert Frost- many of their poems are popular and remembered because of the rhyming. But that is what I think, what are the opinions of others?

    I agree with what u had said Titi Dale. A poet needs to have a sense of rhythm and flow. Yet, not all poems rhyme, and not all rhymes are poetry. It's an art that not all poets can master. But non-rhyming poems can be as great as rhyming ones sometimes or even greater! It's all depends on how the poet prefers to compose poetry and how the poet's culture defines which kind is good and which is better
