The Genry Study

I choose the genre of Interlocking Rubaiyat.
  • The poem is comprised of quatrains following an aaba rhyme pattern.
  • Each successive quatrain picks up the unrhymed line as the rhyme for that stanza. So a three-stanza rubaiyat might rhyme so: aaba/bbcb/ccdc. Sometimes the final stanza, as in Frost's example above, rhymes all four lines.
  • Lines are usually tetrameter and pentameter.
this is the first version when I can only generate one “aaba” style stanzas.

And serves as the model for all the others.
And perches

And when rain is scarce, we pray for it. And so I take unhappiness with happiness Naturally

The direction of my gaze is his pointing
He sleeps inside

If I could sink
To think
They hide
(Do those who believe in St. Barbara Think
If they sang,
And will give us greenness in the spring,
That begins with light
Fills me with feeling,

Invent saints or angels
My old age wouldn’t have wrinkles or white hair...When I was of no more use, my wheels
If they sang,
And feels

I am moved the way water flows
He throws
Invent saints or angels
He shows
