How to appreciate reading works of poetry? I always think it's boring?

    Modern poetry that does not rhyme or scan is nonsense. It is just piles of words. 

    Old poetry by Tennyson, Wordsworth, Byron and others is beautiful.

    Ellen Hopkins writes poetry that tells stories.  They are very depressing though.  But they suck you in.

    Read shorter poems,  I like Limericks.

    yeah I hate poetry too. I rarely get the metaphors. the only poet I ever understood and liked is Langston Hughes. he made me laugh, cry, get angry, and be proud to be black.
