    This is for all the joys missed.

    For puddles never jumped in
    And raindrops never danced in.

    For songs never sung on impulse
    And strangers never hugged for no reason.

    For smiles never worn
    And laughter never shared.

    For snowballs never thrown
    And snowflakes never caught on tongues.

    For starry nights never seen
    And sunrises never watched.

    This is for all the joys missed.

    That is a good poem. Actually one of the only not-rhyming poems I like.
    And I know a lot not-rhyming poems from poets who are famous for their writings. I like non of their thingies.
