Monchielle
According to Shadowpoetry.com, the Monchielle is developed by Jim T. Henriksen. It is a recent developed form, as on a different website the example he wrote was dated November 7th 2005. A new form to play with - still not an easy one.


The guidelines:

*Gift1* The poem contains out of 4 stanzas
*Gift1* Each stanza has five lines.
*Gift1* Every line has six syllables
*Gift1* Every first line is repeated and comes back as the first line of all the other stanzas.
*Gift1* Line 3 and 5 rhyme, in every stanza.
*Gift1* The rhyme scheme: Abcdc Aefgf Ahiji Aklml


My example:

Down by the riverside
Where people love to walk
I see a windmill standing
Right across an artwork
A tiny path is bending

Down by the riverside
Where people come to rest
From everyday life’s stress
Staring in the water
To ducks… they would care less…

Down by the riverside
An artist meets nature
That’s where I want to be
You capture images
then walk along with me

Down by the riverside
I always want to stay
Far from that busy town
Where people never laugh
though here… they never frown.
