A good poem demonstrates excellent command of diction and syntax.

Half measures won’t do. Imprecision won’t do. As a poet, you’ve worked hard to make the perfect choice for every single word of your poem.

You’re using powerful images. A good poem is a symptom of the author’s effort to make sense of the world. For when you're feeling nostalgic: "Wine Tasting" by Kim Addonizio. / Text courtesy of Abrams. More poems can be found in Poem-a-Day: Poems for Every Occasion, which is.
