WELCOME TO FOS – CLICK BANNER FOR FORM EXAMPLE

For this challenge, write a poem using the form presented and your fellow Starlite poets will vote for the one they like the best! The form is:

Monotetra -


The monotetra is a form of poetry I created several years back. The rules are fairly simple – each 4-line stanza (quatrain) is written in tetrameter (4 metrical feet, or approx. 8 syllables) and uses one rhyme (monorhymed) – the rhyme scheme would look like this:

aaaa bbbb cccc etc….

There is another kick to this! On the 4th line of each quatrain, you write a repeating dimeter refrain (2 metrical feet, or about 4 syllables). This sounds harder than it is – please click the banner above for an example of the form! Many Starlite poets have already tried it with great success – you can do it!

Simply write a poem using the form above. The winner of FOS is decided by all Starliters. The Host - Bronze Dragon - presents a new form each week. Challenge ends on May 19th or upon reaching 15 poems entered.


FOS is a voting challenge - please return at the end of the challenge to vote for the poem using the form that you liked best. Any entries not following the form given may be removed by the Host prior to voting.

Thanks, and Have Fun!
