What Is A Good Poem?

Poem By Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

When I read a poem
I look to see
Whether the verse
Appeals to me.

Is there a rhyme?
Do the lines scan?
Will it make sense
To every woman or man?

Is the poem short?
Or is it too long?
Is it split into verses?
Does it sing like a song?

Is the initial letter of each line
A Capital Letter or Small?
Are the questions I ask of myself
When reviewing them all.

For a Poem to be good,
It must give pleasure,
And be wanted to be read again,
By All at their leisure.

Yes. But what about the heart?
Simple n meaningul.. very well drafted.
