What do you get when you cross a terza rima and a villanelle? The answer is a poetic form called a terzanelle.
A terzanelle uses the villanelle’s form of five triplets and a quatrain with the interlocking rhyme scheme of the terza rima.
Here is the line pattern and rhyme scheme.
6 repeat line 2
9 repeat line 5
12 repeat line 8
15 repeat line 11
17 repeat line 1
18 repeat line 14
19 repeat line 3
You can read more about the terzanelle at Form and Formlessness.
I hope you'll join me this week in writing a terzanelle. Please share a link to your poem or the poem itself in the comments.
