I made a resolution
for a life style conversion.
My garden was so very full
there was no room to walk at all.
So I called in a gardening man
and he soon drew up a paper plan.
All my trees and shrubs were then chopped right down
although losing some sadly made me frown.
But ten short days later I looked out with pride
at my revamped lovely garden, and I cried.
The Con-Verse, created by Connie Marcum Wong, consists of three or more 2-line rhyming stanzas. The meter of this form is in ssyllabic verse.
Rhyming scheme: aa,bb,cc,dd,ee
Meter: 7,7, 8,8,9,9,10,10,11,11
This form consists of three or more couplets which ascend by one syllable up to and until you reach a syllabic count of eleven, which would contain ten lines. This process may be repeated for a longer verse. If repeated, you must begin your first couplet with the syllabic count of seven again and continue from there.
