    I am a new member. I can tell you that rhythm and rhyme poetry is liked by many people. For nine years my poems have stayed in my notebook, and I only ever read them to the children at the school where I work. The children don't like what they describe as 'strange' poetry. This, they tell me, is poetry which doesn't rhyme, or the lines are uneven and don't have any rhythm. They are the ones who are so keen on my poetry that last year they have persuaded my husband to put them all on a website for me. The website was completed 5 or 6 weeks ago, and there are well over 1500 people who have visited my site - which obviously proves that rhyme and rhythm poetry are very popular, but yes, very difficult to write well.

    Thanks Angie.......I think she writes some really good stuff. Ok, I was wrong...she's 14! (She corrected me.....I know those years matter!) I'm glad you checked her out. We have lived in different states her whole life and our families have never been close so I'm only getting to know her as all of you are here through her poetry. It's been very nice!
