Having to read or write poetry for a class or assignment? Or maybe you just want to learn to enjoy poetry. Whatever the reason, this is the article for you!

Steps
1) - First, to enjoy poetry, you need to find a topic or genre that interests you.
First, to enjoy poetry, you need to find a topic or genre that interests you. For example, if you like the outdoors, try nature-inspired poetry. No matter what form of writing it is, you won't enjoy it if you are bored with it

2) - Next, read several different poems on the subject that you've chosen.
If you find a particular writer whose work inspires you or is just plain fun for you to read, research the poet a little. You can find more works from them, and further your knowledge of the writer. You may even find more authors with the same form or style of writing.

3) - Keep Reading
The next step in enjoying poetry is rereading a poem many times, and taking it in fully. Really think about the message in it. How does it make you feel? What do you think the author was trying to say through these words? What imagery does the poem create inside your mind? If you take the time to develop a true opinion about the poem, it will better your judgement, and you might even learn life lessons from the write.

4) - Finally, don't feel forced to read any poem.
For some, poetry may never be interesting. For others, it's a true pleasure to read and write

Tips
Have fun! That is the whole point in reading poetry.

Find a favorite poet and read more of their works.

Try writing some of your own poetry. If you try it yourself, it sometimes makes it easier to understand others feelings in their poetry.

Did you know?
A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet's birthday, 25 January, sometimes also known as Robert Burns Day or Burns Night (Burns Nicht), although they may in principle be held at any time of the year.

Burns suppers are most common in Scotland and Northern Ireland, but occur wherever there are Burns Clubs, Scottish Societies, expatriate Scots, or lovers of Burns' poetry. wiki
