Are you a poet? Do you crave romance and bliss? Do you read between the lines? Can you create a poem that speaks from the heart? If the answer is yes, then you've come to the right place! Pull up a chair and I'll make this as painless as possible.
Your job, dear poet, is to write a poem that tugs my heart strings, makes me melt, cry, has me wanting more and falling in love/out of love, identifying with the things that speak to your heart. A poem that has beautiful imagery and brings my imagination to life! Where does your heart take you? Show me your journey through life's ups and downs.
This is a bi-monthly poetry contest, which runs from the 1st of the month through the 15th, 10pm WdC/EST. And from the 16th to the last day of the month,10pm WdC/EST.
ROUND 37 ~ Gwawdodyn Form [Welsh]
Gwawdodyn poetry form:
The gwawdodyn is a Welsh poetic form with a couple variations. However, both versions are comprised of quatrains (4-line stanzas) that have a 9/9/10/9 syllable pattern and matching end rhymes on lines 1, 2, and 4. The variations are made in that third line:
One version has an internal rhyme within the third line. So there’s a rhyme somewhere within the third line with the end rhyme on the third line. The other version has an internal rhyme within the third line that rhymes with an internal rhyme in the fourth line. In both cases, the rhyme starts somewhere in the middle of the third line and it is a unique rhyme to the end rhyme in lines 1, 2, and 4.
