Tip: Never delete or erase anything you have written. Just write the new word or phrase above what you have initially written. These words will give you more options to finalize the poem.
Choose a rhyme scheme
If a rhyme scheme is used, a poem reads better. Use rhyme schemes such as AABB, ABAB, AAAA, ABBA, ABBB, AAAB, ABCD. If this is your first poem, use simpler patterns like AAAA, AABB, or ABAB.
