Poet Rhymer

Poems used to be called rhymes and some people think that anything that rhymes is a poem, but a rhymer and a poet are two different things. Rhymes create a pleasing sound but most of the time they lack meaning; whereas poems express thought and feeling. Rhymes were invented by monks to use as a memory aid for chanting. However, great poets utilize rhyme but don't depend on it because searching for a rhyme may cause the poet to lose an important thought. In poetry you listen to  the words and in rhyme you just hear it. A good poem like good music has beautiful sounds and meaningful lyrics.(Photo by _artfreak)
