April 30th, 2013 Poetry form = Rhyme Royal

Do you feel like you get enough fresh air? If the answer is no, get outside after you write your post!
Rhyme Royal: A type of poetry introduced by Geoffrey Chaucer consisting of stanzas of seven lines in iambic pentameter. The rhyme scheme is a-b-a-b-b-c-c. In practice, the stanza can be constructed either as a tercet and two couplets (a-b-a, b-b, c-c) or a quatrain and a tercet (a-b-a-b, b-c-c)

Yes, oh yes please
I need fresh air
Fresh air to breathe

Fresh air is essential to self care
Get enough, daily don't wait for a dare

Stand tall and breathe in deep
Fresh air helps you sleep

It is not in iambic pentameter but it is a good beginning draft.
