Limerick
There was an old man of the bend
Who sat forever to no end
And when they asked him to move
He said to please remove
They were blocking his view of the bend

Haiku
Cool Fun in the sun
Never fun on a rainy day
Only in the sun

Definition of poetry
Poetry is an imaginative awareness of experience expressed through meaning, sound, and rhythmic language choices so as to evoke an emotional response. Poetry has been known to employ meter and rhyme, but this is by no means necessary.

Romanticism
In his desire to identify with a spiritual force, the Romantic often expressed the Faustian aspiration after the sublime and the wonderful. Committed to change, flux rather than stasis, he longs to believe that man is perfectible, that moral as well as mechanical progress is possible

Transcendentalism
Transcendentalism is a philosophy that emphasizes the a priori conditions of knowledge and experience or the unknowable character of ultimate reality or that emphasizes the transcendent as the fundamental reality.
