I know that this is a holiday week, but this seemed like a good time to write a madrigal.
The English Madrigal is a 13 line poem written as a tercet, quatrain, and sextain. The lines of the tercet serve as refrains. The English madrigal is written in iambic pentameter and is rhymed. Here is the form.
6 repeat line 1 (A)
7 repeat line 2 (B1)
11 repeat line 1 (A)
12 repeat line 2 (B1)
13 repeat line 3 (B2)
You can read more about the madrigal form at Robert Lee Brewer's Poetic Asides and Poetry Magnum Opus.
I hope you'll join me this week in writing an English madrigal. Please share a link to your poem or the poem itself in the comments.
