Poetic Forms: The Monotetra

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

A Monotetra is comprised of quatrains written with 8 syllable lines all in tetrameter. These poems can consist of as many or few quatrains as you want. Each quatrain should be mono-rhymed, which is to say that all four lines have the same end rhyme sound. This end rhyme sound doesn’t need to carry over between stanzas. The last rule is that the final line of each stanza repeats the same four syllables. So it would look like “she had to go, she had to go” for example.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
