2016 Poetry Workshop Week 3
I am so sorry to be posting this so late! I got a bit distracted by life... OOPs!

Now that we have explored Poetic Devices and Rhyme and Meter it is time to take a look at some Poetry Forms. There are numerous Poetry Forms and in this class we will be learning five of them. I chose these because I think they are rather easy forms to learn and they often can be used to tell a story. This way we can delve into the Fantasy and Science Fiction genre.

This week's form is called a Quatrain.

A Quatrain is a poem consisting of four lines of verse with a specific rhyming scheme.

A few examples of a quatrain rhyming scheme are as follows:

#1) abab
#2) abba -- envelope rhyme
#3) aabb
#4) aaba, bbcb, ccdc, dddd -- chain rhyme
