Poetry Examples for Certain Forms

Here are some very simple examples of certain forms of poetry.

ABC Poem


A glistening slowflake
Bright light reflects
Creates shadows 
Distant wonderland
The winter is the best time of year.

Dramatic Monologue

Of course, this is from Hamlet:

Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar?
