To still make it poetry, the words have to be well-chosen and artistic, and it is usually still arranged in stanzas and lines, not in paragraphs. The majority of modern poetry is free verse.

Iamb (foot)

An iamb /'a?m/, or iambus, is a metrical foot used in various types of poetry. Originally the term referred to one of the feet of the quantitative meter of classical Greek prosody: a short syllable followed by a long syllable (as in "delay"). This terminology was adopted in the description of accentual-syllabic verse in English, where it refers to a foot comprising an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable.

IAMBIC PENTAMETER (from Greek: ?aµß???? pe?t?µet??? meaning to have five iambs) is a commonly used metrical line in traditional verse and verse drama. The term describes the particular rhythm that the words establish in that line. That rhythm is measured in small groups of syllables; these small groups of syllables are called "feet". The word "iambic" describes the type of foot that is used (in English, an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable). The word "pentameter" indicates that a line has five of these "feet."
