Poetry doesn’t always need to rhyme. Some poets swear this is never supposed to be. Others do believe a poem should rhyme. Whatever your opinion might be on this, the poem “Sea Shell” is an example of poetry that doesn’t rhyme. This is free verse and there is nothing wrong with this poetic expression!
Sometimes it doesn’t take that many words to come up with a good poem. A poem that will be read long after you’re dead. The American poet Walt Whitman proved this with the poem “To you.” Another fine example of free verse.
Let’s not confuse the title of this poem with a political slogan, shall we? This is about the poem “I Hear America singing”, written by Walt Whitman (1819 – 1892). It’s an entirely different poem or title than the political slogan “Make America great again.” But, what is the poem of Whitman about?
