What has your experience been with poetry during the course of your life?  When you read a poem, what determines -- for you -- whether it is artful (or literary) or not?  Do you prefer poems that rhyme, that tell a story, that don't rhyme, that are "epic," that are written in stanzas?  Have you written poetry in your life and read your work aloud?  Answer any question, or a few, in your post.  I look forward to reading your replies!
