Do poets have to rhyme,
not all the time?
All roses are not red,
every person has a
different head.
Life is full of rhyme
and treason,
some poets rhyme
for reason.
I rhyme because it's
like playing a game,
find a word that
sounds the same.

It's entertainment
to me,
not all for others
eyes to see.
In the midst of
my rain,
rhyming relaxes
my brain.
I love great message
in poetic expression,
it doesn't have to be
a rhyming lesson.

Some poems rhyme,
some don't,
Sometimes they do,
at times they won't.
Some poets rhyme,
some won't,
Sometimes they do,
at times they don't.

Excellent, my friend...
Mine usually rhyme, because I
find it challenging and fun
to think of words that rhyme.

I find rhymes easy, but not a lot harder, as the poem is straight in head, then on paper.

But love all forms; love the way you did this in rhyme....

it's a person's perogative if they want to rhyme or not. some of my earlier poems have absolutely no rhyming in them while others i have written (especially ones i have done lately) do have a lot of rhyme. the meter isn't so hot, but it is something i have to work on. LOL being a poet isn't as easy as it may appear; therefore, i will stick to stories! LOL

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in tx., karen lynn. :D

great write as always, grady; thanks for sharing your poetic wisdom with us here at the den! keep up the great work you always do! i am a fan for life!
