Poetry is the expression of self, emotions, thoughts and views. While the content, length, complexity and creativity of a poem are determined by you, there are many common poetry styles and elements to guide you as you structure your poem. You can add depth and texture to a poem by using concrete, descriptive words, sensory details — such as sight, sound and taste — and metaphors or similes that compare your subject to other common objects.

There are five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line and five syllables in the third line, with a total of 17 syllables all together.
