"I decided that it was not wisdom that enabled poets to write their poetry, but a kind of instinct or inspiration, such as you find in seers and prophets who deliver all their sublime messages without knowing in the least what they mean."
"Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary."
What to Do With a Quadrilew
I've been dedicating myself to creating first a garden and eventually a permaculture food forest. One of my new trees is called a Jaboticaba. It took awhile to figure out how to pronounce it but once I did, it became rather fun to say.
So, as I was working on this newsletter, I found that saying Quadrilew was rather fun, too. And so this was what based my decision to feature this poetry form today. I hope you have as much fun in creating one as I have in saying it's name
This form is the invention of C. G. V. Lewis. It's one of the many forms that utilize repetition. Remember: repeating lines have an added impact to poetry, so make them count.
--line count: 4 per stanzas for a total of 16
--meter: syllabic. Either 5656 or 6565
--number of stanzas: 4
--Repetition: Line two/stanza one becomes line one/stanza two, Line three/stanza one becomes line one/stanza three, Line four/stanza one becomes line one/stanza four.
