My favorite form of poetry is Haiku (Japanese poetry). In its English form it is 3 lines with the first and last line being 5 syllables and the middle line being 7 syllables. In content they usually relate to nature or the seasons. For instance if you go out on a cold winter day and notice the ice crystals formed on the pond this may also evoke feelings of sadness or coldness in your own life and these can be woven together in the Haiku poem. Although haiku are only 3 lines I like to put sets of them together making longer poems. Not a correct form but I find that it works for me.
Lovely Lizards Lurk
Little Limey Leprechauns
Lounging on Spring Leaves
My heart leaps forward
Fear, saddness all forgotten
Watching the lizards

I came across this poem by Roald Dahl that I really loved:
A woman who my mother knows
(The book I found it in was Romantic Poetry: 150 Poems for Love and Romance)
