The Wrapped Refrain, consists of 2 stanzas of 6 lines each;
Meter: 8,8,8,8,12,12 and Rhyme Scheme: a,a,b,b,c,c.
Refrain rule: In each stanza the first 4 syllables (or 4 single-
syllable words) in the first line must be
the last 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) at the end of
the last line. This is what wraps each
stanza with a repeated refrain ...thus, the Wrapped Refrain.
Optional: The first stanza refrain and last stanza refrain can
be joined (or loosely joined) together
for the title of the poem.
