This topic is interesting. See different poets use different ways of writing to get their message to you. Some use a lot of words to describe something where others might use more pictures than words and briefly describe with words. Other poets just write small poems and that is just fine. I think I prefer to read the poems that are short and have some pictures. In a poem I look for imaging that creates colors in your head. Like in a poem by Edgar Allen Poe there is a line that says "fairy fruits and flowers." That makes be think of bright colors and my imagination does the rest. That is what I think makes a good poem.
