Poetry is the most compressed form of writing. Poems tend to use fewer words to convey a thought, action or emotion than works of fiction does. In poetry, every single word has a significant impact on the meaning of the poem. Poems may follow specific rules of format and use poetic devices to help convey meaning, or they may be completely free form.
