Here are the qualities of a 3-stanza poem:
A 3-stanza poem is the most common and simplest form of poem. It can either be a rhyming one or a free-flowing. This example is surely reminiscent of poems you read, memorized, and recited back in grade school.
Due to its shortness, a 3-stanza poem does not have enough room for lengthy preludes commonly read in other longer forms of poem.

If you have very strong feelings about something, you will find it easy to dedicate a 3-stanza poem to it. The ease in writing your 3-stanza poem comes from how passionate you are about the topic.

Since there are countless of things that anyone can write a 3-stanza poem about, whether it is your favorite time of year, food, game, or even your beloved pet, you can write about anything as long as you follow the format - 3 stanzas only.
