Poetry and including poems in our writing is one of those interesting literary devices that is either loved or hated by both the writer and the reader.
As a writer, I myself love a bit of poetry here and there. The chance to break away from writing my story and have a little fun jotting down a few rhymes is always a welcome break to the slow plod that is often storytelling. However, I have often wondered if readers love it just as much? Or would they simply skim over it and continue on reading the story?
