    Form gives structure to meaning. Stanzas serve to group ideas together and the size of each stanza guides the digestion of the poem's content. Stanza breaks can also give emphasis to the final line of a stanza. Line breaks tell the reader where to pause. Rhyme schemes and consonance/assonance affect the experience of smoothness and coherence of the poem's content, and can serve to group or emphasize certain lines, words or ideas. Line indents/shorter lines give emphasis to those lines.
