three stanza poem

profilenisaarie

Create an original 11 line poem of three stanzas tercets of 3 lines each with a fourth stanza doublet of two lines. Be sure to follow Terza Rima

 

It is an interlocking, repeating pattern of the first and third line sharing a rhyme, while the second line is shared with the first and third line of the next stanza. The pattern looks like this:  a/b/a, b/c/b, c/d/c, and so on. This is an example of Terza Rima:

Acquainted with the Night

I have been one acquainted with the night.

I have walked out in rain—and back in rain.

I have out walked the furthest city light.

I have looked down the saddest city lane.

I have passed by the watchman on his beat

And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.

I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet

When far away an interrupted cry

Came over houses from another street,

But not to call me back or say good-bye;

And further still at an unearthly height,

One luminary clock against the sky

Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right

I have been one acquainted with the night.

Robert Frost, 1928
