A quatrain that rhymes ABAB and alternates four-stress and three-stress iambic lines.
It is the meter of the hymn and the ballad. Verse that emphasizes nonlinguistic elements in its meaning, such as a typeface that creates a visual image of the topic. An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art. In traditional English poetry, it is often a melancholy poem that laments its subject's death but ends in consolation.
By this author
Nonmetrical, nonrhyming lines that closely follow the natural rhythms of speech. A regular pattern of sound or rhythm may emerge in free-verse lines, but the poet does not adhere to a metrical plan in their composition. Consisting of syntactically and grammatically complete couplets, the form also has an intricate rhyme scheme. These poems are largely concerned with the use of strong and evocative images to create a highly visual, imaginative reading experience. An early 20th-century poetic movement that relied on the resonance of concrete images drawn in precise, colloquial language rather than traditional poetic diction and meter.
Heart as Dark as Your Soul
A formal, often ceremonious lyric poem that addresses and often celebrates a person, place, thing, or idea. Its stanza forms vary. Poets writing in English drew on the pastoral tradition by retreating from the trappings of modernity to the imagined virtues and romance of rural life. Its themes persist in poems that romanticize rural life or reappraise the natural world.
A prose composition that, while not broken into verse lines, demonstrates other traits such as symbols, metaphors, and other figures of speech common to poetry. A line poem with a variable rhyme scheme. Poetry whose meter is determined by the total number of syllables per line, rather than the number of stresses. A French verse form consisting of five three-line stanzas and a final quatrain, with the first and third lines of the first stanza repeating alternately in the following stanzas.

Epilogue The Campus on the Hill. Cadillac Moon. Meeting at Night. Sometimes I wanna fly up high. So high! And through the clouds!
I would like to kick! The moms and dads take a nap and then they go to work and then they make dinner and then they watch Netflix. The moms and dads have two jobs. The moms and dads and their kids go in a big, big hot tub. The old snake been playing in the backyard. The old snake been swirling, swirling, swirling.
