The Awdl Gynt

Red Admiral

by Dolly'sPoems


My eye, it spied a butterfly,
in short supply ’round here,
against a dull and rainy sky,
so shy, he disappeared.
His liberty as he passed by,
reminded me to question why,
this petalled beauty soon will die.
Red Admiral Pioneer.




The awdl gynt rhyme scheme. The poem is divided into 'cycles'. Each cycle is in three parts: 1. A quatrain of alternating iambic tetrameter/trimeter (common metre), 2. A tercet of iambic tetrameter. 3. A single line of iambic trimeter. The form relies on cross rhyme on given syllables in addition to end rhyme. In the graphic diagram below each syllable is represented by a letter. Syllables marked 'x' are not required to rhyme, elsewhere like syllables rhyme. Near rhyme and assonance are acceptable.
