To Rhyme Or Not To Rhyme


A poem does not strictly need rhyme,
I do agree more than one time,

what does matter is it can touch,
with which, again, I subscribe much,

a person the hand can not reach,
to bring beauty it seeks to preach,

but I too hold some poems need rhyme,
but pin it not on me as a crime,

rhyme, to a poem, do add music,
and fortifies it like tonic.
