Count That Day Lost
by George Eliot

What is poetry?
Poets have, for centuries, created poetry as a visual art form.
Lewis Carroll’s A Mouse’s Tale can be found in the third chapter of
Alice in Wonderland
and is a tale about a mouse tail, which you can see in the poem’s shape:

Count That Day Lost
If you sit down at set of sun
And count the acts that you have done,
And, counting, find
One self-denying deed, one word
That eased the heart of him who heard,
One glance most kind
That fell like sunshine where it went
Then you may count that day well spent.

so... what is poetry??

Poetry is organized into lines and prose is organized in sentences and paragraphs, . 
It is a way to compare by saying one thing is another thing.

For example: wings of love, an icy look, you are my sunshine, heart of a matter, rosy cheeks

Expressing an idea by comparing one thing with an aspect of another thing, using ‘like’ or ’as…as…’ to show similarity.

For example: He is as brave as a lion.
You smell like a rose, Sleeps like a log
Poetry has rich language
compared to prose.
Poetry is used to make
the reader feel or react
The word “poem” comes from the Greek word, poíēma, “a thing made.”
Poetry developed from an oral tradition. Before there were printed text, millions of years before the internet, poems were spoken, sung, memorized and repeated like music.

This is why rhyme and meter are essential characteristics of poetry and in order to fully experience a poem, you must read it aloud. 
Poetry is meant to be experienced, not analyzed.

Greeks composed pattern poems, verses formed in the shape of an object such as an alter, wings, or a pipe, and the theme of the poem itself complemented the shape:

In the 20th century, poets used to create visual poetry
But if, through all the livelong day,
You've cheered no heart, by yea or nay
If, through it all
You've nothing done that you can trace
That brought the sunshine to one face
No act most small
That helped some soul and nothing cost Then count that day as worse than lost.
