This book contains over twenty-eight different types of poetry, with explanations and examples of each type. Many of my poems are romantic, such as aMy Beloved, a aOde to Melissa, a aTo Love a Woman, a aMy Heartas Desire, a aLove, a and aMy Love.a While others are inspirational, like aForgiveness, a aHope, a aThe Seven Virtues, a aEmpathy, a and aKindness.a Still others are philosophical in nature, such as my poems aLiving, a aTrue Freedom, a aWho Knows What Tomorrow Brings, a and aThe State of the Economy.a My kyrielle poem aLifea could be said to be both inspirational and philosophical. Some of my poems are educational, like aThe Benefits of Reading, a which extols the virtues of reading, and aTo Be Young Again, a which talks about nutrition and exercise. Some are family-oriented poems, such as my poem aLittle Bit, a which I wrote for my niece Kristin, or aCamping with Younger Brother, a which I wrote for my brother Craig, or aLittle Child, a which I wrote for all the little ones in the world. Other poems are devoted to naturealike my aFroggy, a aTurtle, a aTornado, a and aMother Naturea poemsaor to mankind in general, such as aEarth on Which We Livea and aTrue Happiness.a And others were written with some fun in mind, like the poem aNudea I wrote in response to an online contest to rhyme the last word in each line with the word nude. (aBirthday Lessona is another fun poem like this.) I also did a series of seven poems on each of athe seven deadly sins, a where I used archaic language to spoof each of these asins, a which unfortunately often plague mankind. I truly hope you will enjoy reading the poems contained in this book.This book contains over twenty-eight different types of poetry, with explanations and examples of each type.
