Elements of Poetry - Copley

Elements of Poetry By Mr. Antal CFMS Poetry? Poetry was a means of communication long before people used written language. Even in later civilizations, where few people could read or write, poems were used to communicate history and newsworthy events as well as to entertain and inspire. To this day, most poems are best enjoyed when read aloud because of their musical sound, rhythm, and language.
