In your opinion, is using a rhyme scheme in poetry more amusing than reading a poem which has no rhyme scheme?
I prefer not to rhyme but sometimes the rhyme makes the poem
Do you know the difference between a rhyme and a rhyme scheme?
The way my English teacher described rhyme schemes may confuse some of you, but it is using a pattern to write the poem.
Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet.
And so are you.
The rhyme scheme for that poem was:
A - No rhyme
B - Rhyme
C - No Rhyme
B - Rhyme
I don't think a poem needs a rhyme scheme to flow, although sometimes a rhyme scheme makes the poem entirely and, if it didn't rhyme, no one would like it.
Thank you.. that is one way to describe a rhyme scheme, but the other way would be that the words don't literally rhyme but flow as if they rhymed.
Do you feel what I am trying to say? They don't actually rhyme but would flow if you were reading it correctly.
Now would a poem that had a rhyme scheme like this be more amusing than a poem that has actual rhyming words?

I have wanted to write a poem, however, are there any rules? Do the rules of grammar still apply? Or is it a 'free for all' with words?
