    DIDACTIC poetry is a poetic form intended for instruction of knowledge and/or to teach or warn. Good examples are the typical Aecedarium poems for children. Hilaire Belloc wrote quite a few didactic poems for children about the horrible things that could happen when they do not do as they should.

    There are no typical rhyme schemes or other rules for didactic poetry, other than the instructional purpose.

    Example by Unknown Author

    To Spread Love

    Start with acceptance.
    If you've done any wrongs,
    Then head to repentance.

    Embrace those most unique.
    Teach them to use their voices,
    And not be afraid to speak.

    Spread love to those in need.
    Make them feel special and open,
    Your kitchen, bring one in to feed.

    To Finish
    Live out your days this way,
    Not "an eye for an eye".
    Never listen to what others say.
