What is your favourite type of poem?

I quite like Sestinas and Sonnets, although Limericks can be fun. ^_^

I guess I am more of a subtle rhyming poem furson.

I'm a fan of acrostic free verse and formal(rhyming) poetry...

I like writing anything with rigid rules, since it's one less thing to worry about. Reading-wise, I like the exact opposite (favorite examples hither, yon and thon, and also here, of course).

I've never heard of a sestina before, though. Interesting.
