The prose is a normal language or normal speech. The verse is not a normal language. The prose is like any sustained wodge of the text. Verse is a set mater, looks distinctive on pages of the notebook or book.

The LAMDA Entry Level Award in Communication: Speaking Verse and Prose is designed to introduce learners to basic skills in verse speaking. Learners will perform two verse selections from memory, audibly and will be able to show that they understand the meaning of what they are speaking. Prose is meant to mimic natural speech, while verse focuses on creating rhythm and cadence.

When you read an "everyday" text, it's almost surely in prose. Prose does not usually rhyme, while verse usually rhymes. However, as you have seen, there are exceptions.

Prose poetry is a famous style of writing that includes lyrical words that convey certain emotions. Basically, the writer writes in prose, but uses poetic techniques. To understand the concept of prose poetry, you must be aware of the terms prose and poetry separately.

The prose is the typical form of writing that does not contain any poetic meter. In Verse Writing songs or poems is a creative, powerful way to express an opinion, convey an emotion, send a message, or tell a story.

Many of Shakespeare’s low-class characters speak in prose to distinguish themselves from the higher-class, verse-speaking characters. For example, the porter in "Macbeth" speaks in prose: "Faith, sir, we were carousing till the second cock, and drink, sir, is a great provoker of three things.".

With prose, readers can read the sentences formed out loud without having to take note of accents, stressing, and rhythm, since it is technically like speaking normally. A verse, on the other hand, needs a certain amount of meticulous composition that prose generally lacks.
