    You are right, Jodah. All poetry forms/styles have their place. I love to read your poems. I guess it depends on my mood, sometimes I like emotional epic poems like Evangelina and sometimes inspirational sonnets, and many others.

    My favorite narrative poem is Evangeline by Longfellow. Have you read that, dksuttle?

    Hi Maven. Adhering to the discipline of poetry, like haiku and sonnets, is challenging, yet enjoyable.
