A Ballad is a poem that tells a story, which are often used in songs because of their rhyme. A Ballad can be about any topic but usually involves matters of love.

The haiku is a Japanese verse in three lines. Line one has 5 syllables, line 2 has 7 syllables and line three has 5 syllables. Haiku is a mood poem and often involves themes of nature.
