The cool thing about poetry is that everyone can interpret poems in their own way.  A "great poem" is different in the eyes of so many people.  What makes a "great" poem in my opinion, is one that triggers some sort of emotion within YOU, (the writer)...which can often by misinterpreted by others.  So, when you think you've written a great poem....the odds are, you HAVE.  Wink

Here's a two-step technique to avoid undue effort, to prevent being bothered by boring mistakes,
to confidently write a great poem every time, and to never suffer the indignation of being misinterpreted:

1. Never let anyone else read your poetry.
2. Never read any of your own that's more than a day old.

I practiced this technique for many years with excellent results.
But alas, it requires discipline. I was weak, neglected its practice, and was cast from Eden.
