Here are yet some more poetry forms that I found:

Rondel Prime (or Rondel Supreme): French, 14 lines, 2 quatrains and a sestet, RS: ABba abAB abbaAB
Rondelet: French, septet RS: AbAabbA the refrain is 4 syllables and the rest are 8 syllables.
Madrigal: Italian, two or three tercets and a couplet (which rhymes aa), seven or eleven syllables throughout, the name also refers to a type of song.
Cyhydedd Fer (cuh-huh-death ver)- Welsh, a rhyming couplet of eight syllables per line
Cyhydedd Fer Sonnet- Welsh, a poem comprised of seven cyhydedd fers
Gayatri- Hindu meditative song, three lines long, each eight syllables long.
Heroic Couplet- any rhyming couplet, whether standing alone or part of a larger poem (like as the volta in a Shakespearean sonnet), that is written in iambic pentameter 
Heroic Sestet- Sicilian stanza form, iambic pentameter, RS: ababcc
Spenserian Stanza- nine-line stanza, the first eight are iambic pentameter and the last line is iambic hexameter.
Rime Couee- French, sestet stanza form, RS: aabaab or aabccb, lines can be any length but lines 3 and 6 are at least two syllables shorter

I'd also like to discuss meter a little. A meter is comprised of "feet," each foot is a certain set of stressed and/or unstressed syllables. Here are the five kinds i know of:

Iamb: an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable (like "create")
Trochee: A stressed syllable followed by an unstressed syllable (like "combat")
Dactyl: A stressed syllable followed by two unstressed syllables (like "miracle")
Anapest: Two unstressed syllables followed by a stressed syllables (like"intertwine")
Spondee: Two stressed syllables (like "trap door")
