poetic device: List Poems

A “list poem” is a poem that incorporates some kind of list, often in the middle of the poem. It can be a list of objects, actions, ideas, or even words or people. If you’d like to learn to write your own list poems, check out this lesson.

All of these poems are list poems to some degree. Many of them are pure list poems, while others have a small list somewhere in the poem.
