As you might know, periodically I run a competition for people who love to write in rhyme.
My New Spring Competition is underway as we speak (the deadline is midnight Wednesday 30th October).
Some people have asked the question – what is the difference between a rhyming poem and a story written in rhyming verse? And I thought the easiest way to answer this question was to show you two examples of my own.
A Story written in rhyming verse
Simply put then – a poem captures a moment, a feeling, an emotion and a story tells a story with a beginning, a middle and and an end.
