    The two words poem and poetry are interchangeably used although there is a difference between poem and poetry. The inner meanings of poem and poetry are different. Their connotations do differ to some extent. A poem is a piece of literary work. Poetry is an art form. The Oxford dictionary gives more detailed and elaborate definitions of the two terms poem and poetry. A poem is “a piece of writing in which the expression of feelings and ideas is given intensity by particular attention to diction (sometimes involving rhyme), rhythm, and imagery.” Poetry, on the other hand, is “literary work in which the expression of feelings and ideas is given intensity by the use of distinctive style and rhythm; poems collectively or as a genre of literature.”
