The key to writing good poetry lies in two stages. First, you must acquaint yourself with the best American and English poets of all time and study their work. Second, you must pinpoint the source(s) of inspiration from which you draw ideas, thoughts, feelings, and emotion and find ways outside everyday speech to express them. Simply put, your final verse should synthesize what you have learned and drawn from your studies and what you want to write about.
In regard to poetry, always keep in mind these three things:
There is no greater way to learn than to learn through example.
There are no greater examples than the poems written by famous, accomplished poets.
There are no greater teachers than the poets themselves.
