Four Lines

That lines two, three, one and four rhyme
seems strange and rather more like prose.
The constraints keep the meter close,
let meaning float beneath the lines.

  1. Thank you. The form is an envelope stanza where lines 1 and 4 rhyme and lines 2 and 3. I like poetry without rhyme but I needed something structured if I was going to try a project 365. I compromised and am satisfied with slant and near rhymes.
