A whistling wind blew errant leaves
through the garden, in the eaves.
It's aim was making menace.
The trees withstood with grimace,
letting go their dignity
for the autumn symphony.
I don't like poetry where people bend language to sound unnatural so that it fits in with the rhyming pattern. Here's an example I'm making up now:
The sight before her struck her dumb
And from her mouth a scream did come.
No-one speaks like that saying, 'From her mouth a scream did come' unless it's meant to sound funny. Is that what you mean by not using usual language syntax?

My recent entry for "Bestie", utilizes not only unusual syntax, but also archaic words:
I can only surmise that one or both of the following is true:
1) If I hadn't utilized these devices, I would have placed 1st in E. C. instead of 3rd--okay will maybe 2nd.
2) For this type of poem, unusual syntax and archaic words are acceptable.
