- A poem is a passage that often uses rhyme and rhythm. Poems are made up of lines. A group of lines is called a stanza.
These are the elements or parts of a poem:
- Verses: lines that make up a poem
- Stanzas: a group of lines
- Rhyme: using words that end in the same sound
- Rhythm: the way sound is repeated in a pattern
- Meter: the beat of the poem made by repeating a pattern of syllables
