I have gathered you here today to mourn rhyming poetry’s death. For modern poets think it's too blasé regardless its rhythm or breath. Lyrical literature’s cliché although it's been regaled for years. For now there’s a different way of expressing your fears and tears. Locked in the dusty pages of time rhyme died because critics shunned it. And its once clear distinctive chime was stripped of its rapier wit. Beloved and yet missed by few it has slipped into history. Yet when I hear what rhyme can do it’s death remains a mystery. It's been laid to rest by free style lift your pens and bid it adieu! Yet visit it once in a while and help keep its legacy true.

A fun read, Emile. Hard to believe there would be a day where rhyming would not be appreciated.

Wow! This is so lyrical and flowing. I love to read rhyming poetry but when I rhyme it seems to be accidental.

Rhyming poetry is alive and well in the romantic hearts of poets Emile. I predict it will make a comeback, especially when written with classic lines like you write. I love and am inspired by both rhyming and unrhymed poetry. We need to embrace both styles. I enjoyed this wonderful expressive piece Emile! 7

I'm with you on this one. It does seem to be out of fashion, which I simply can't understand. Nevertheless, I think it's sound advice to "visit it once in a while" to keep it alive. In the long view, I think rhymed poems will always be a staple of the writing community, critically acclaimed or not.

It may not have been what I wanted to hear, but omg it was so clever and such a beautiful flow. This is 10 star poetry in my book! Of coarse I am giving it a 7. Is it really critiqued that bad though?.. I was hoping to go somewhere :(... One day, maybe lol

Anna, once more I am basking in your praise, thanks so much. Emile.

First of all, really? I love the rhythm of a good rhyming poem! I couldn't write poetry that didn't rhyme if I tried. For that reason, I view it as requiring more talent. Secondly, I label pretty much everything I write "free verse". They always rhyme though. I don't know all of the rules of poetry. I pick up pieces here and there and test them out. I guess it is easier to not label it. That way I can't be wrong lol. Thirdly, this poem is SUPER EXCELLENT!
