Spanish Verse
Flamenca or Seguidilla Gitana carries a fast staccato rhythm. It is a variation of the Seguidilla.

The elements of the Flamenca are:

  1. stanzaic, can be written in any number of quintains.
  2. syllabic, 6-6-5-6-6 syllables per line to imitate the rapid click of the heels of a dancer.
  3. L2 and L5 assonate. (same vowel sounds)

    Song of the Matador by Judi Van Gorder

    In a dark cantina
    a twelve string guitar keens
    a feverish dirge,
    tones of glory and fame,
    the matador's heartbeat.
