Do you honestly enjoy reading free verse? Can you explain to me why I should enjoy it, too?

Help me appreciate poetry (I suppose specifically blank verse by the examples below of what I've read) by teaching me to understand the merits of the poet's constructions! I enjoy literature because of their content, and not so much the aesthetics or specific construction of sentences, words, meter, rhyme, and so forth. For the most part, this has been fine for me because conventionally at least when one comes across poetry, its not in the manner of an epic tale and so I don't feel like I'm missing out on too much.

Ogden Nash made quite a splash.
And somewhat darker, Dottie Parker.
Silverstein was near divine,
And all revere old Edward Lear.
But now I suffer from a curse:
My thirst for rhyme has grown perverse!
I need a doctor or a nurse;
My problem is becoming worse.
So lest I end up in a hearse,
Please point me t'wards some more light verse!

Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
How did Blake get away with this rhyme? [MI] [more inside]
