#TheWombwellRainbow #PoeticFormsChallenge. It is weekly. Seventeen form a #RINNARD. I will post the challenge to create a first draft of a poetic form by the following late Sunday. Please email your first draft to me, including an updated short, third person bio and a short prose piece about the challenges you faced and how you overcame them. Except when I’m working at the supermarket I am always ready to help those that get stuck. I will blog my progress throughout the week. Hopefully it may help the stumped. Also below please find links to helpful websites.

The rinnard or roinnard is an Irish poetic form.

It has the following guidelines:

An example first:

 

Quatrain (or four-line) poem (or stanzas).

Six-syllable lines.

Two-syllable rhymes at the end of each line.

Rhyme scheme for each quatrain: abcb.

The “a” and “c” words consonate with the “b” words

Usually an alcill rhyme between lines three and four.

Note on aicill rhyme:

An aicill rhyme in this poem means that the final syllable of line three rhymes somewhere in line four (usually the middle).
