The meeting short – a brief exchange,
Important matters to arrange.
The envelope passed –
Future events cast –
Time at last –
Regime change

 

I have been experimenting recently with the clogyrnach form.  As Colleen’s 2020 Weekly  challenge was for poets to choose their own theme and format, I thought I would give it a go in that form.  While the form is not on on Colleen’s Syllabic Form Cheatsheet, I thought she might appreciate yet another syllabic form.

Clogyrnach

A clogyrnach is poem. This Welsh poetic form is typically a six-line syllabic stanza with an ab rhyme scheme:

Line 1: 8 syllables with an a rhyme
Line 2: 8 syllables with an a rhyme
Line 3: 5 syllables with a b rhyme
Line 4: 5 syllables with a b rhyme
Line 5: 3 syllables with a b rhyme
Line 6: 3 syllables with an a rhyme
