It still amuses my how many people are completely unaware that there are other forms of poetry in the world other than sonnets, limericks and haiku.
For the those curious about the various forms I have used I will list them here. This way I’m not repeating myself over and over again when reusing my favorite forms.
Let the class begin…
Strambotto – Siciliano / Romagnuolo / Toscano
Tanka / Super Tanka
Terza Rima Sonnet
It’s amazing how many forms of poetry have been invented. No doubt there are many others in addition to those you mentioned.
No doubt, indeed. I haven’t even scratched the surface of what’s out there Bob.
I was just reading something else when I noticed this link and had to come and investigate. I have made an attempt or two at Lukes Octains, but thats it from this list. Now I guess I am just going to have to try some of the others out, just to satisfy my own curiosity.
