 Poetry - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Poetry often uses condensed forms and conventions to reinforce or expand the meaning of the underlying words or to invoke emotional or sensual experiences in the reader, as well as using devices such as assonance, alliteration and rhythm to achieve musical or incantatory effects.
Poetic diction describes the manner in which language is used and refers not only to the sound but also to the underlying meaning and its interaction with sound and form.
In more developed, closed or "received" forms, rhyming scheme, meter and other elements of a poem are based on sets of rules, ranging from the relatively loose rules that govern the construction of an elegy to the highly formalized structure of the ghazal or villanelle.

 Aristotle (384-322 BCE): General Introduction [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
Forms are not causes of movement and alteration in the physical objects of sensation.
The prominent virtue of this list is high-mindedness, which, as being a kind of ideal self-respect, is regarded as the crown of all the other virtues, depending on them for its existence, and itself in turn tending to intensify their force.
The list seems to be more a deduction from the formula than a statement of the facts on which the formula itself depends, and Aristotle accordingly finds language frequently inadequate to express the states of excess or defect which his theory involves (for example in dealing with the virtue of ambition).

 Poetic Forms: A Poetry Workshop
In this workshop we’re going to explore issues of "form" in poetry by working in, against, and through a number of traditional poetic structures: quatrains, sonnets, blank verse, villanelles, sestinas, and a few others.
But what the demands of the form also create are opportunities for the writer to revise that line (and no line ought to be so precious that it can’t be re-thought).
That there is the clear pattern of sound arising out of most forms is a kind of added bonus, especially for the writer who’s used to working in the generally muted sound of free verse.

The chant is one of the earliest forms of poetry, dating to prehistoric time, when cavefolk made incantations to protect themselves from storms, fires, wild creatures, and to help in the hunt, to find good mates, to keep the children safe and well, and to teach about those who went before.
The basic form is four stanzas of four lines each, in which each line of the first stanza is consecutively repeated as the first line of each of the other stanzas, and allows for a variation where an extra final line may be included.
EXPANDED FORM: As long as there are a minimum of four lines and four stanzas, and the lines of the first stanza are used as the opening lines of the successive stanzas, the poem may be considered a Lilibonelle.
