- Free verse

Free verse is verse that is released from the convention of metre, with its regular pattern of stresses and line lengths. Free verse is printed in broken-up lines like verse (unlike prose) and it is frequently rhythmical, sometimes containing metrical regularity, but overall free from regular lines of repeated feet.
