Hexaduad
The Hexaduad
_________________________________________________

Knowing how much Bianca enjoys posting forms in this book of forms, I took the liberty of entering the Hexaduad.

The Huxaduad form was introduced to me by friend and fellow Writing.com poet c.r.stone. The example given below - Expressions - is her poem.


The Hexaduad is a syllabic Old English form of poetry, comprised of a series of rhyming couplets that vary between 2, 4, 6, and 8 syllables per line. It contains one stanza of six rhyming couplets or twelve lines. The rhyme scheme is set at 2/2/6/6/8/8/4/4/6/6/4/4. The syllable structure is aa, bb, cc, dd, ee, ff.

Expressions


So strong
a song
would help to remember
burning flames and ember.
When past melodies seemed to haunt
on piano cords I would jaunt--
past reflections,
and rejections.
To me, my love delight,
In mind you still ignite.
You are to me
pure poetry.

c.r.stone
