One of the early forms of poetry was Qasida in royal courts. Qasida are poems of more than 100 couplets that do not rhyme. Anvari was one of the poets who used Qasida.

Ghazal from about 12th century is another form of lyric. Ghazal poems were a    much shorter form, 10 couplets that do not rhyme and mainly used to express  love, both human or mystic. Hafez and Saadi mastered this form of poetry.
Rubai and dobaty are both four lines poems which are distinguished from each other by their rhythm. They may express mystical, romantic or philosophical themes. Omar Khayam is one of the pioneers in writing Rubai and his books are translated into many languages.
Masnavi with its unique rhyming couplets was utilized for epic poems. Avesta included epic poetry. Ferdosi wrote the Shahnameh or 'Book Of Kings,' which is a finished form of epic poetry with 50,000 couplets. The narrative form of masnavi was used by Nizami. Masnavi was also used by the mystic poets Farid od Din Attar who wrote The Conference of The Birds and Jalaluddin Rumi who wrote the    Masnavi Manawi.
