Annually at Christmas my Church has a Concert Evening where music, poetry, sketches etc are performed, this is a Poem that I wrote for them.

Poetry

I said I’d tell a poem
To this august crowd,
Then I had to find one,
And say it right out loud.

Would it be by Shakespeare,
Milton, Poe or Keats.
It had to by someone
To keep you in your seats.

Words of yellow daffodils,
Or maybe love or war,
Of youth or age or beauty;
I hope I’m not a bore.

The modern type of poem?
That doesn’t ever rhyme.
That seems to go on for ever,
With no punctuation or break for breath or sense of rhythm but drones on in a monotonous way that is only understandable in the strange mind of the author.

But no, you’re stuck with this one,
Not a massive work of art.
But it’s good enough for you lot!
So with that, I’ll now depart.

I have been writing poetry for a few years now and use it as a release for all types of feelings. I do not follow any set rules poetry as I find I cannot get the feeling correct if I use the rules.
