Tinker Posted April 26, 2020 Share Posted April 26, 2020 Gratitude in Social Distancing In tones from high to low - pounding, banging, clanging sounds, fast and slow celebrate brave souls we know. We cheer, we clap, stand in a row. Wooden spoon striking metal pan - clanking. A Thank You for human kindness serving everyman, to heal, protect our lifespan. ~~Judi Van Gorder Notes: ▼ Englyn unodl union, én-glin éen-oddle éen-yon (straight one rhyme englyn)the 3rd codified Official Welsh Meter, is the most popular of the Englyn meters and is often referred to as simply Englyn. It can range from lyrical to didactic and sometimes satirical. It is said to require "pithy expression and concise thinking." Singing in Chains by M. Hopwood. The uneven lines are referred to as the paladr or shaft and the even lines are the esgyll or wings of the stanza. Important features of the meter are the 2nd line must end on an unstressed syllable and the last line should be strong. The Englyn unodl crwc, is the structural reversal of the englyn unodl union and is rarely used. The elements of the englyn unodl union are: stanzaic, written in any number of quatrains. syllabic, made up of 10-6-7-7 syllable lines. rhymed, mono rhymed, the main rhyme (the dominant rhyme of the stanza) "A" is found somewhere in the last half of L1 (6th, 7th or 8th syllables) and is followed by caesura plus the rest of the 10 syllables and rhymes with the end words of L2 through L4. composed with an addendum, a "gair cyrch" in L1 (syllables in the last half of a line that follow the main rhyme marked by caesura. The gair cyrch end rhyme is to be echoed or consonated as secondary rhyme in the 1st half of L2. The caesura often appears as a dash.) written with L2 always ending in an unstressed syllable and either L3 or L4 should also end in an unstressed syllable. x x x x x x A - x x b (the main rhyme, A can be in either the 6th, 7th, or 8th syllable and must be followed by caesura.) x b x x x A x x x x x x A x x x x x x A Quote ~~ © ~~ Poems by Judi Van Gorder ~~ For permission to use this work you can write to Tinker1111@icloud.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
