100 Uses For Poetry and Poems?

Press release from: Poet's Train Publications

From weddings to eulogies or even stand up comedy, poems have a variety of uses in public speaking.
A new website called Poet's Train educates readers about different forms of poetry and offers suggestions on ways to use poetry.

El Cerrito California - 1/20/2006 - Is your best friend getting married? Did a loved one recently die? You may be in need of poetry, and here are some reasons why...

Often times in life, important events require speeches. And sometimes, the job of creating a speech falls upon you. If you find yourself in the situation of having to create a great speech, you may have considered using poetry.

"Poetry can be used to express passion in a variety of monumental events" says Art Hill.

"By referencing a great poem or a great quote at a wedding or funeral or some other important event, a person making a speech can at once look personally eloquent and make the event special."

Here are 5 major speaking situations in which poetry can be used:

1. Wedding speeches - If you must make a speech or say a toast at a wedding, a properly selected poem is definitely thoughtful.

2. Funerals - A poem that somehow relates to the deceased or to death in general can be of comfort at a funeral.

3. Romantic pursuits - Romantic poetry has been around for hundreds of years. While it is a debatable tactic of seduction, poetry has been used in the context of romance.

4. Company speeches or inspirational speeches - A rousing speech can be made with the proper selection of inspirational poetry and quotes inserted in a speech.

5. Comedy routines - It is a little quirky, but comedic poetry can be extremely clever.

If you are in need of poetry it is important to research and find good poems to work with.

While a well selected poem can be perfect to make an occasion special, a poorly selected poem that has no relevance can sound, well, stupid.

So, research a little first on the internet, it is easy.

You can learn about different forms of poetry and also get some resources on how to incorporate them into speeches at the new poetry site

Art Hill publishes a daily poetry blog and compiles resources on poetry at his website.

Contact Art Hill for more insights into this topic.
