Anustubh Meter
Compared to the Anustubh, the Anustubh meter consists only of 16 syllables. The caesura or break falls in the middle of the poem, after the eighth syllable.

The syllable pattern is as following:

long long long long short long long short /
long long long long short long short long.

I tried to write an example:

carry me back, marching slowly
fire a salute and close my grave.
