What is Reflective Poetry? 2Admin Staff answered 6 months ago

Reflective poetry or reflective poem is a genre of poetry in which the poet expresses his state of mind using images and symbols and compares them with real life objects and scenes.

Thus a reflective poem is normally quite long and also thoughtful unlike lyric poetry which is short and expresses feelings.

An example of reflective poem is “An Essay on Man” by Alexander Pope.
