Writing Poetry For Greeting Cards

Aug 18, 2007
Some of the poetry for greeting cards was written with a certain person in mind. The poet might be a star crossed lover who has to put their heartfelt feelings on paper and the magic that is derived from the words they write serves to ignite feelings and emotions in any person who picks up the card and reads the words inside the cover of the card.

Other poetry for greeting cards are meant for amusement purposes only. People buy this type of greeting card when they want to take a whimsical approach at poking fun at a friend. The poetry inside the card might not have any rhyming set in the words but the laughter that the words cause lets the sender know that the message was delivered and understood.

As poets create the poetry for greeting cards, they may have to pause a moment to get themselves in the right mood to write them. Some greeting cards are to express sympathies for the death of a loved one and it takes the right mindset to create words of sympathy. A poet knows that some families will reflect on the words in the poem to find comfort and to remember the loved one that has passed away.

The poetry for greeting cards that are given in celebration of a birthday is varied. Some people poke fun through their words because someone in their life has reached the over the hill mark of 40. This type of poetry will serve as a reminder that even if the person is getting older, they are only getting better.

Some people need to feel lighthearted about reaching milestones in the aging process and the words of the greeting card may be pinned to an office cubicle wall all year long because the words on the greeting card were so sweet. The poetry for greeting cards can be serious, solemn or outrageously funny, and each of the greeting cards that are received for special occasions serve as personal reminders that they are special.

There is no format for poetry for greeting cards. Some greeting card companies prefer to use writers that have a certain sense of style and elegance, but they will also employ individuals who have a modern outlook to life. The market for greeting cards is just as individual as the people that receive a greeting card and a greeting company knows that they must have a varied assortment of cards for a customer to choose from.

Many greeting card companies will make envelopes that show the poetry for greeting cards in a special window that is built into the envelope. This open presentation is perfect for greeting cards that are used as gift cards and are placed on gift boxes and packages in envelopes that also match the color scheme of the celebration that they are being purchased for. Envelopes with lace imprints on it would be the perfect choice for weddings and anniversaries.
