poetic device: Narrative Poems

Narrative poems are poems that tell a story. It doesn’t have to be a long or complex story. It can even be a short narrative poem that describes something that happened.

Narrative poems are one of the main poetic styles. Others include lyric poems, which describe the narrator’s emotions or feelings, and descriptive poems, which give a detailed description of a person, an object, or an event.

Each of these poems tell a story. Some are short and some are long, while most are somewhere in the middle, but all of them are fun.
