    1)A few stanzas that rhyme and complement each other devise a poem.It is about expressing your inner feelings and thoughts and penning them down.It flows along a rhythmic language and words do not come out just from the mouth,but it comes deep from the heart.

    2)We study poetry to understand the profound words of the stanzas,and to relate to them.Also to express feelings better and also helps to comprehend emotions better.

  21. BENZ e280 Says:

    1) Poetry is a short piece of imaginative writing, of a personal nature and laid out in lines is the usual answer. A good poem is beyond just mere words and should be creative, short, sweet but descriptive on one person's feeling to something or someone. A poem can be created with different types, some can rhyme, some can be like a song.

    2) Poem is one of the most powerful literary methods used to convey ideas or opinions. Poem is everywhere which is like a part of a person's life. Feelings can also be expressed through poems, which understands each other better.

  22. ~Tay Pei Shan~ Says:

    Poetry is fun, Poetry is a way to express our feelings, Poetry can be converted into a song, Poetry can sometimes be very chim, Poetry can help us go to sleep, Poetry is literature, Poetry can be love letters. --

    We study poetry to learn chim chim words, so that we can improve our english. It also helps to improve our composition skills as it allows us to use chim chim words to express our feelings, which are sometimes needed for writing essays.

  23. Nah Hui Kang,Christopher Says:

    1) What's poetry?
    Poetry is something that is fun, personal and evokes feelings of the one that is reading the poem. It is a important part of English as we learn how to make use of correct words to create a poem that is meaningful or fun to read.

    2) Why do we study poetry?
    Personally, I think we study it just because it is part of our English syllabus. It can be boring when learning it but it may be useful one day when we wish to attract attention or evoke the feelings of the one that is reading the poem.
    Poetry can be nice and we can use it to make someone who is unhappy happy. For example, we can make good use of the skills that we have acquired when learning poetry and maybe write a meaningful and touching poem to our moms this Mother's day.
    Poetry to me, is like the most interesting and meaningful part of learning English.

    I agree with Benz's comment. Poetry was "born" to express feelings, used to touch peoples' hearts. And to do that, descriptive words are supposed to be use.

    ~ "Poem is one of the most powerful literary methods used to convey ideas or opinions." It can also be used in letters, emails and compositions.

  47. Nah Hui Kang,Christopher Says:

    I totally agree with Benz as I also think that poetry is the most powerful literacy method of expressing one's feelings or thoughts. I also think that poem is everywhere which is like a part of a person's life. Without poems, life may become a little dull. Poems also helps us to understand the writer better.
