Your Host: Bronze Dragon
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:
The Octelle is a form created by Emily Romano. It is eight (8) lines and the rhyme scheme is aabbccaa, the syllable count is 8 8 7 7 7 7 8 8. The first two lines are repeated as the last two lines. What further sets the form, in its description, is "using personification and symbolism
in a telling manner." - Define that as you will! To me, the use of the repeating refrain makes it very similar in composition to the triolet (if anyone remembers that one).
Please click the banner above for an example of the form.
Simply write a poem using the form above. The winner of the FOS Weekly Form challenge is decided by all Starliters. The Host - Bronze Dragon - presents a new form each week. Challenge ends on the date and at the time above (top left corner) 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!
