Tibetan Verse

The Gzha is Tibetan folk poetry, a dance song.    yak-milking.0.jpg

The elements of the Gzha are:

  1. syllabic, written in 6 syllable lines, usually trochaic. The form ends with a spondee SS.
  2. written in 4 lines.
  3. unrhymed but parallelism is expected. The poem often employs internal consonance and assonance.

    Super Sunday by Judi Van Gorder

    Wearing pads and helmets
    players fight for pig skin
    ball. The Super Bowl is
    football's final Big Game.
