Poetry means different things to different people,but what kind of writing can not be considered as poems to you? Some poems seem more like lyrics,songs,some like prose. Not sure where to post this so posted it here. Thanks.

Mr Hsu, Poetry was sung thousands of years before it was spoken. Form is irrelevant. I've defined Poetry as "the Emotional Content of Literature." If it's emotional, it's Poetry. If it's informative only, it's Prose. Bob

I really dont know what would not be a poem......There is all sorts of styles for poetry....And peps have their own way of doing just that

Life is like a flower,
It will boom every year,
But dies when the cold wind is near-Ettie
