 This project was a challenge, but thoughtfully enjoyable!

It consisted of taking a form of poems from an A-V list
A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I,K,L,M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,V- turn them into a rhyming poem that is mostly about poems/rhyming poems. Here you will find some of the poems that became the product of that challenge that is now in an eBook.

"A" Abstract

According to Wikipedia, Edith Sitwell used the term "abstract" in the same context as Sound poetry; meaning that the sound, texture, and rhythm of the poem is what makes it an abstract, more so than the meaning of the words. 

Rhymes A Lot

Poems formed as abstract
Most often than not
Are written in order to attract
Emotions from which they brought
Meaning of words soon forgot
That have no real plot
Only given not much to thought
For the words not caught
Here; an abstract that rhymes a lot

"G" Ghazal
The ghazal (pronounced "guzzle") is a Persian form. These poems are couplets being thoughts on their own; however, working together, as well. Rhyme scheme usually follows as; aa, ba, ca and so on. 

Rhyming Word Challenge

Rhyming poems for some can be a challenge
But, we always mange to make it happen

As humans we have words that rhyme
In our everyday language that we manage

How fun rhyming words for some can be
That can also enhance our knowledge

Sometimes rhyming may seem to need training college
But, most times it only takes self-knowledge

Some of us poets don't always agree 
Rhyming words in a poem to be a challenge

“K” Kyrielle
The kyrielle is a French four-line stanza form with 8 syllables per line that has a refrain in the fourth line. It can have stanzas as long or as short as you want the poem to be. The rhyme scheme possible is aabb,abab,aaab,abcb, just don’t forget your refrain at the end of each stanza. 

Rhyming Form Awesome

Another challenge in rhyming
Additional thought in priming
Will make this rhyming poem blossom
Its pattern is very awesome

Ending this rhyming poem of form
I had to create and perform
To make this poem really blossom
It’s pattern was very awesome

“R” Rispetto
The rispetto follows the rhyme scheme of ababccdd or abababcc. There are no rules about subject matter; however, have found one has a choice of two versions. They are:
Rispetto #1: Poem comprised of two quatrains written in iambic tetrameter
Rispetto #2: Poem comprised of eight hendecasyllabic lines, usually one stanza.
Which ever one you choose, either one does follow the rhyme scheme mentioned above. 

Rhyming of Iambic Syllables 

As from of iambic syllables as control
Giving this poem a form cretic
Making the form as prime-goal
In rhyming of its form poetic

A second stanza it did entreat
In order to rhyme it complete
The iambic syllables did enhance
Where the rhyming of the poem did dispense

“T” Tricube
The tricube is a simple quadratic form of a mathematical poem. 
Here are the guidelines:
Each line contains three syllables
Each stanza contains three lines
Each poem contains three stanzas 

Three-by-Three Rhyme 

Three by three
Where it rhymes
This poem to be

Just in time
Rhyme you see
To make it prime

This to be
Poem of rhyme 
Three by tree

“V” Villanelle
The villanelle is French form, like most other French poems, incorporates a strict rhyme scheme and repetition. The villanelle is a quadratic poem that is five tercets consisting of line lengths of 8-10 syllables. The first and third lines of the first stanza become refrains that repeat throughout the poem. 

Here is how it should look:

A (1)
A (2)




A (2) 


A (1)


A (2) 


A (1)
A (2) 

Rhyming Form, I defend, Just in Time 

This being the last form of poems that rhyme
Where the journey comes to an end
Finishing this rhyming project just in time 

Hoping the point made as they chime
That rhyming poems can become the trend
This being the last form of poems that rhyme

Perfect this poem for rhyming as its prime
For the tone in message it does send
Finishing this rhyming project just in time

How easy rhyming poems can become in-time
In giving them consideration, I defend
This being the last form of poems that rhyme

Hope this journey of rhymes did chime
Giving thought in rhyming poems as a trend
Finishing this rhyming project just in time

Had fun in this journey of poems that rhyme
But now it all must come to an end 
This being the last form of poems that rhyme
Finishing this rhyming project just in time
