Journal History


Here are the last of the poetry forms that I have found in my research, or at least the ones in which the format is confirmed (remember that RS means rhyme scheme and capital lettersrefer to refrains):

Ballade Supreme- French, three ten-line stanzas that rhymes ababbccdcD and an ending four-line stanza that rhymes ccdcD
Duoble Ballade With 10-line Stanzas
- six ten-line stanzas, RS: ababbccdcD
Terzanelle- Italian, five tercets with two primary refrains(A1 and A2), RS: A1BA2 bCB cDC dED eFE fA1FA2
Ghazal- Arabic, five to fifteen couplets, the even lines rhyme and contain some kind of a refrain, and in the last couplet, the author must make a referance to himself or herself.
Rime Royale- Anglo-French stanza form, seven lines, RS:ababbcc, most often in Iambic pentameter
Rondeau- French, three stanzas, the first is five lines, the second is four lines, and the third is six lines,has a refrain but is only part of the first line RS:A1abba aabA1 aabbaA1
Rondeau Redouble- French, five quatrains and a qunitet, first quatrain's lines are sequentially the end lines of the subsequent quatrains, quintet ends with the first line of the poem
