    rhymed or unrhymed lines that have no set fixed
    metrical pattern. The early 20th-century poets
    were the first to write what they called "free

    formula and rigidity of traditional poetry. The
    poetry of Walt Whitman provides many
    illustrations of Free Verse including his poem
    "Song of Myself".

Cheddar Cheese and Chocolate Cake
I am crazy about rich, dark, espresso coffee. I
am addicted to extra-sharp cheddar cheese and
chocolate cake. I never tire of window-shopping
or munching crisp apple pies from Burger King. I
can consume a whole package of Wheat Thins while
curled up reading a favorite novel. I wear purple
eyeshadow and pink nail varnish- always. I love
to laugh and scream for joy, to sing at the top
of my voice. I like to play heavy rock loud
enough to burst your eardrums. I like crazy
parties, whipped cream, and solitude. Juliet
Gainsborough
