I will give you an example of a correct Zen Poem

the four elements 
disperse as in a dream.
the six perceptions, 
six senses, 
and the six consciousnesses 
are originally transparent.
to understand this,
the Buddhas 
and all the eminent teachers
return to the place of light.
the sun is setting 
over the Western Mountain,
the moon is rising
in the East.

Yes, but it doesn't rhyme.
