While some are traditional rhyming poems (such as sonnets or limericks), there are also many other poem types, including free verse poems, sestinas, and the shadorma. Before this blog moved to its new WordPress platform, I had a post that collected all the poem types explained on Poetic Asides. With the move, all the URLs changed and some posts apparently disappeared into the ether. So here’s a new post collecting what I can find, and I’ll fill in the gaps as we poem along.
