People always dream to be able to write nice poetry, but due to the lack of sense to compose poetry, they tend to ignore composing poetry. They think that let the poets do their works, why creating hardships for them. We think that composing poetry is not for all and only for the poets. Sometimes people think that rather than writing a love letter, it would have been more interesting if we could write a poetry expressing our feelings to our partner, but we fail to do it.

Here, I am going to give you some tips, which can help you compose beautiful poets.

Being emotional - For any poetry to be composed, it is always necessary that one needs to be emotional. A common man thinks that being emotional only means emotional in love. It is not like that. Being emotional does not means having a girlfriend or a boyfriend and making romantic sentences. It simply means consulting your heart for everything and anything, otherwise great poets would not have appraised the beauty of nature in their long and beautiful and emotional poems.

So, before writing a poem, one should ask himself and know whether he has enough emotions or not. Believe me, being emotional drowns you to the most beautiful things in the world and let you see the most valuable thing that you have in yourself, your tears.

Knowing the rhyming scheme - Rhyme, in the field of poetry, simply means the matching of sounds. There are basically two types of rhyming scheme in English

AA-BB rhyming scheme - AA-BB rhyming scheme is the rhyming scheme in which the words of the first line of the stanza rhymes with the corresponding word of the second line and the words of the third line of the stanza rhymes with the corresponding word of the fourth line.

AB-AB rhyming scheme - AB-AB rhyming scheme simply means the rhyming scheme in which the words of the first line of the stanza rhymes with the corresponding word of the second line and the words of the third line of the stanza rhymes with the corresponding word of the fourth line.

Having good vocabulary - In any language, its vocabulary is like the fragrance of its flowers. The better, appropriate and correct words used, the better the poetry comes out.


Ability to express yourself - The main objective of any composition, be it prose, essay, anything is to express what you think. And specially in poetry composition, you need an extraordinary capability to express yourself.

After all, poetry is the beauty of any language.
