Word flow

Syllable counts and rhyme schemes
Give a poem form and distinction
But the free verse has no restrictions
And your words may flow as you deem

 The number of lines are important too
Five for the Tanka and three for the haiku
Limericks have five,  there are  three in the senryu
A four line bio is called a clerihew
