    I like writing poetry a lot more than reading it.

    I love song lyrics though, just usually not as much when they are detached from the song itself, but some lyrics are great even by themselves.

    I don't understand what makes a poem a poem. If I take something that I wrote, break it up into lines, and place it interestingly on a piece of paper, I can call it a poem and it will be more critically acclaimed than when it had been previously a piece of prose.

    I took a creative writing class, and the only difference that I learned between prose and poetry in that class is that poems are called poems, and prose is called prose. Poems don't always rhyme, have rhythm, have stanzas, or have figurative language. sometimes they don't even look like poems.
    I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.

    xSFPs might be more apt to reading/creating poetry and songwriting...

    Like Jeffster, I love writing poetry, but not necessarily reading it.

    And I love song lyrics!

    I love SP poetry.

    Naesala: Oh no, that I could never do. You see, humans are essential to the fulfillment of my ambitions.

    Reyson: You've changed, Naesala. If this is the path you've chosen, I've nothing left to say.

    I do love reading some poems; not necessarily writing them though and, correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought poetry was more an NF thing.

    Here's one of my favourites. I do generally enjoy Robert Frost. DH Lawrence is another whose works I enjoy as is Wilfred Owen.


    Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
    That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
    And spills the upper boulders in the sun,
    And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
    The work of hunters is another thing:
    I have come after them and made repair
    Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
    But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
    To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
    No one has seen them made or heard them made,
    But at spring mending-time we find them there.
    I let my neighbor know beyond the hill;
    And on a day we meet to walk the line
    And set the wall between us once again.
    We keep the wall between us as we go.
    To each the boulders that have fallen to each.
    And some are loaves and some so nearly balls
    We have to use a spell to make them balance:
    'Stay where you are until our backs are turned!'
    We wear our fingers rough with handling them.
    Oh, just another kind of out-door game,
    One on a side. It comes to little more:
    There where it is we do not need the wall:
    He is all pine and I am apple orchard.
    My apple trees will never get across
    And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him.
    He only says, 'Good fences make good neighbors'.
    Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
    If I could put a notion in his head:
    'Why do they make good neighbors? Isn't it
    Where there are cows?
    But here there are no cows.
    Before I built a wall I'd ask to know
    What I was walling in or walling out,
    And to whom I was like to give offence.
    Something there is that doesn't love a wall,
    That wants it down.' I could say 'Elves' to him,
    But it's not elves exactly, and I'd rather
    He said it for himself. I see him there
    Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
    In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
    He moves in darkness as it seems to me~
    Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
    He will not go behind his father's saying,
    And he likes having thought of it so well
    He says again, "Good fences make good neighbors."

    My ISFP mom loved/loves poetry and used to recite some (most often Blake) for me when I was little. So that's one more person to support the SP-poetry link.
