Today at One Stop Poetry @ http://onestoppoetry.com/ The wonderful Gay Cannon is back with lessons on the Ottava Rima. Gay is much better suited to explain, so please go to OSP for the lesson... In the mean time here is the short and sweet version...
The classic rhyme scheme in English of ottava rima is a stanza which consists of eight iambic lines, usually written in iambic pentameter. Each stanza consists of three alternate rhymes and one double rhyme, following the a-b-a-b-a-b-c-c pattern.
OFF WE GO... OURS IS...
Your smile warms me like the hot summer sun
filling my senses deep into my soul
reminding me of days when we had fun
dancing and singing to old rock and roll
We'd swim in the sea, the moon we'd outrun
through the starry nights we'd take a long stroll
Our days of old where our love started then
Your smile so warm takes me there again
Wow done in one today !!
