Nice Poetry - Poetry

Poetry (from Ancient Greek: ποιέω/ποιῶ (poiéo/poió) = I create / I make / I do / I cause) is traditionally a written art form in which human language is used for its aesthetic qualities in addition to, or instead of, its notional and semantic content. The increased emphasis on the aesthetics of language and the deliberate use of features such as repetition, meter and rhyme, are what are commonly used to distinguish poetry from prose, but debates over such distinctions still persist.

Definition of Poetry

It is difficult to define poetry definitively, especially when one considers that poetry encompasses forms as different as epic poetry and haiku. Needless to say, many poets have given their own definitions. Samuel Taylor Coleridge defined poetry as "The best words in the best order." Carl Sandburg said that "poetry is the synthesis of hyacinths and biscuits.", while Robert Frost stated that "Poetry is the first thing lost in translation".

Poetry can be differentiated from prose, which is language meant to convey meaning in a less condensed way by using more logical or narrative structures. This does not imply poetry is illogical. Poetry is often created from the desire to escape the logical, as well as expressing feelings and other expressions in a tight, condensed manner. English Romantic poet John Keats termed this escape from logic Negative Capability. A poet is therefore one who creates and poetry is what the poet creates. The underlying concept of the poet as creator is not uncommon.

Lines of poems are often organized into stanzas, or sets of related lines. These are also commonly referred to in Latin, so a collection of four lines is a quatrain, six lines is a sestet and a collection of eight lines is an octet. Two lines is a couplet (or distich), three lines is a tercet, and five lines is a quintain (or cinquain).
