How to write the poem?

Each person can write verses. Just not everyone knows about it. But you - that already know therefore allow the imagination to think up something and to rhyme. Right now. How it becomes? Very simply.

You take any floor . For example, “lost“ the word. What rhyme can be thought up to this word? For example, “changed“, “eulogized“, “changed“, “wished“, “strayed“, “jumped“, “dragged“, “contained“, “dived“, “knew“, “walked“, “stank“, “faded“, “fyrchat“, “amazed“, “studied“, “checked“, “rumpled“, “returned“, “foretold“, “touched“, “tamed“, “strengthened“, “loosened“, “reported“, “insisted“, “rumpled“, “shone“, “drove“, “dragged“, “began to sound“ etc. Hundreds of words can be thought up in a rhyme (by the way, inventing of rhymes - excellent exercise in itself for mind).

We take, for example, the floor “walked“. So, we have a pair rhyme - “lost“ and “walked“. We try to construct the offer of these two words. Think: “lost“ and “walked“ … Who is capable of it? It has to be some living being - the person, a deer, a Manchurian deer, a giraffe, a badger, a hippopotamus, a donkey, a polecat, a gopher, a jackal, the dlinnokhobotny weevil, a leopard, a cat … Let`s take, for example, a cat.

So, we rhyme. What turns out?
Once cat... lost
When... walked.

What the cat could lose? And where it could walk? Let`s say here so:
Once the cat the tail lost
When in darkness of night down the street walked.

Or:
Once the cat patience lost
When on a roof with a kitty walked.

Or, for example, here so: Once the cat of a kitten lost
, - the Kitten just took
and escaped …
Is not present

, it is too sad. Let`s stop better on the first option. Also we will think up continuation. So,

Once the cat the tail lost
When in darkness of night down the street walked.

What? Time he lost something, it means has to find something . We take the floor “found“. We think out to it a rhyme. For example, “entered“, “approached“, “came“, “passed“, “left“ … It is not enough suitable rhymes.

We take then other floor. We think: when, where and how the cat could find something? For example, time it walked at night, means could find the tail in the morning or in the afternoon. To the word in “morning“ it is even more difficult to pick up a rhyme. We will resort to cunning. With what morning is associated? From the dawn, sunrise, light, a dawn … Let`s take the last floor - “dawn“. What rhymes can be picked up? For example, “taking“, “tearing up“, “thanking“, “December“, “savage“, “monastery“, “secretary“, “leader“, “bullfinch“, “lamp“, “grief“, “idolizing“, “in vain“ … Let`s take a pair rhyme - “dawn“ and “in vain“. Also we will receive:

But here... a dawn
Was... in vain.

So … We substitute proper words and we receive:
But here in the sky flashed a dawn -
Was a tail. Day passed not for nothing.

Or:
But here ascended to a firmament a dawn -
Was a tail. Our cat in vain cried.

Or here so:
But here by the light of a morning dawn -
Was a tail, the devil tear up it …

So, the quatrain turned out:
Once the cat the tail lost
When in darkness of night down the street walked.
But here by the light of a morning dawn -
Was a tail, the devil tear up it …

As you can see, in versification is present nothing difficult. Think up a certain situation and look for keywords which can be rhymed . And then - simply add to the rhymed words the phrases specifying and connecting them together .

Also do not listen to highbrow literary critics who claim that normal poets so do not write verses. If there is a desire to write - surely write.
