AnswerA poem is a song that's written in words and that rhymes or at least rhymes in a certain kind of way. A story is something written longer and in dialogue. Basically, I'm saying a poem is a song and a story is not a song. That's the difference.

^ Not all poems rhyme. Today constant rhyming poems are actually looked down on as made for children.

A story tells you about either a person,place,time, or state like in some poems but poems aren't stories when you write poems you feel the truth of it sink in the story you just read.
