This web site is about poets and poetry. We are here to introduce you to some of the most beautiful texts written through history.

Poetry is one of the oldest and most persevering forms of writing and literature and is a form of aesthetics. Poetry is typically used in describing a feeling, person, place, situation, or other object, and usually appears in the form of short versus.

Although poetry often features a rhyming scheme, it is not required. Instead, they are often visually or audibly balanced when they are spoken or when they appear on paper. The sonnet is an example of a type of well balanced poem. Haiku is an excellent example of poem featuring rhythm as the syllables to the words are broken down in a 5-7-5 pattern of lines.

More modern and well known types of poetry include concrete poetry, free verse, and slam poetry.
