Brief Definition

A verse is a type of poem with a single line of poetry. It can have different meanings. A verse poem may contain a stanza, which is a line in a poem with a recurring pattern. It can contain a meter which is a syllable pattern within a poem. It can also contain metrical writing which is a pattern of beats within the line of the poem. A verse poem can come in two different forms, free verse or blank verse. A free verse poem does not have a set meter, the contents flow freely to the author's design. A blank verse poem has no rhyming theme, but it does involve an iambic pentameter which is a meter of ten syllables such as the plays written by William Shakespeare. A verse is often the identifying factor of poetry and is the more recognizable form. Verse poems are also sometimes identified as stanza poems, while not being incorrect it is not entirely accurate for a stanza is contained within a verse. 

Verse Poem Example

Indian Ink

“Indian Accent”

Hear the whispers inside

Chanting from long ago
Echoes come and go
Losing time in a soft eternal glow

A beautiful and delicate autumn mountain scene
Dry blue eyes enchanting melodies!
Voices fall from the sky;    -Rising hymns release 
-ancient demons that   CLING to the soul

Darkness dwells under - gentle moonlight
Ancestors of the Spirit World!
Weaving Native smoke into the barren air
Indian spirits haunt the muddy Earth---
Moccasin makers rise from underneath;    While
  guardians of dream catchers - print the Universe
Smooth thread from the outer world; 
Arrowheads,   Ivory gems,   feathers, and illusions
I stumble upon a florid kiss.......   My veins;
Run Cold, like ice through a desert night.

Winds of enchanted drums - cry out for rain
Hollow chimes mesmerize,  my ties,  my eyes
An ancient rage begins to flare --- MADNESS! 
- takes place among the sanity of  who   I am
The spear of the perfumed buffalo scrapes my skin
I remove the veil that covers my eyes
The hands that cover my ears
Drying the scalp that bleeds on my face


Raven silk braids and feathers on my hair
Dancing in a horrid hallucination of Peyote,
Waking up from the “American Dream.”
Holding out my arms, I am free, I can fly.
