Hello everyone!
I have just recently gotten into poetry, due to reading much of it in school. I thoroughly enjoy Robert Browning. I have so many moments in life where I feel the need to channel my emotions, and poetry is one way to do that. Does anyone have any tips of writing poetry? Before, it sounded like a 5-year-old wrote it. I have been getting better, but I need some tips to work with.
Thanks so much!

    Read great (timeless) poetry. READ, READ, READ. Imitate, absorb, analyze.
