    Link: What poetry form are you? - Take this quiz to reveal what poetry form you would be if you were in fact a poetry form.

    I`m terza rima, and I talk and smile. Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away I let mine out, and chatter all the while. I`m rarely on my own - a wasted day Is any day that`s spent without a friend, With nothing much to do or hear or say. I like to be with people, and depend On company for being entertained; Which seems a good solution, in the end.

    I am heroic couplets; most precise
    And fond of order. Planned and structured. Nice.
    I know, of course, just what I want; I know,
    As well, what I will do to make it so.
    This doesn`t mean that I attempt to shun
    Excitement, entertainment, pleasure, fun;
    But they must keep their place, like all the rest;
    They might be good, but ordered life is best.

    I am, of course, none other than blank verse.
    I don`t know where I`m going, yes, quite right;
    And when I get there (if I ever do)
    I might not recognise it. So? Your point?
    Why should I have a destination set?
    I`m relatively happy as I am,
    And wouldn`t want to be forever aimed
    Towards some future path or special goal.
    It`s not to do with laziness, as such.
    It`s just that one the whole I`d rather not
    Be bothered - so I drift contentedly;
    An underrated way of life, I find.

    I am the tanka.
    The attention of others
    Is unnerving, and
    Since I try not to draw it,
    I`m left alone. Which is good.

    A cywydd llosgyrnog; I`m one.
    "A what?" Well, quite. There`d be no fun
    In being understood; I
    Thrive upon obliquity.
    Don`t comprehend or follow me,
    For mystery`s my ally.

    I`m the lai, with no sort
    Of grave, solemn thought,
    And I
    Will never be caught
    By miseries sought,
    Nor sigh;
    Where battles are fought
    Or arguments brought,
    I fly.

    I, as a clerihew,
    Tend to be merry; too
    Merry, it might, perhaps, by some, be claimed;
    But I`m sure that these people are wrong, and need to be grievously maimed.

    Ottava rima? Me? That can`t be right!
    Too frivolous? But tut, there`s no such thing!
    Let others ponder thoughts of wrong and right,
    Or sit and think how much they love the spring;
    I`d rather spend my time in gleeful spite,
    Or maybe laugh, or maybe sit and sing.
    Besides, it might be fun to be inspiring -
    But surely it would get so very tiring.

    I am the sonnet, never quickly thrilled;
    Not prone to overstated gushing praise
    Nor yet to seething rants and anger, filled
    With overstretched opinions to rephrase;
    But on the other hand, not fond of fools,
    And thus, not fond of people, on the whole;
    And holding to the sound and useful rules,
    Not those that seek unjustified control.
    I`m balanced, measured, sensible (at least,
    I think I am, and usually I`m right);
    And when more ostentatious types have ceased,
    I`m still around, and doing, still, alright.
    In short, I`m calm and rational and stable -
    Or, well, I am, as much as I am able.

    Or:

    If they told you I`m mad, then they lied.
    I`m odd, but it isn`t compulsive.
    I`m the triolet, bursting with pride;
    If they told you I`m mad, then they lied.
    No, it isn`t obsessive. Now hide
    All the spoons or I might get convulsive.
    If they told you I`m mad then they lied.
    I`m odd, but it isn`t compulsive.

    Yay, rhyming.

    I know I should be telling you that I`m
    A rubai - but perhaps some other time.
    It sounds like work, and anyway, it`s late -
    Unless I sleep, I`ll be too tired to rhyme.

    Besides, there`s plates to clear and cups to clink,
    And when that`s done I have to sit and think,
    Since then it won`t be long before I need
    To sleep again and eat again and drink.


    Then it says, if you were not a Rubai, you`d be a haiku.
