Poetry Forms Easily Explained - a work of Bianca with additions by kansaspoet

Cyhydedd Fer
One of the easiest Welsh poetry forms is the Cyhydedd Fer. The description I found told - and I quote:" A rhymed couplet of 8-syllable lines."

My feelings with this form is that this couplet can be witty - there is no info if the poem is a stand alone stanza only, or that more stanzas can be added.

Example:
This silence in my home I’ll keep
As long as baby is asleep
