A is for Alouette

A

The Alouette, created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more stanzas of 6 lines each, with the following set rules:

Meter: 5, 5, 7, 5, 5, 7
Rhyme Scheme: a, a, b, c, c, b

The form name is a French word meaning ‘skylark’ or larks that fly high, the association to the lark’s song being appropriate for the musical quality of this form. The word ‘alouette’ can also mean a children’s song (usually sung in a group), and although this poetry form is not necessarily for children’s poetry (but can be applied that way), it is reminiscent of that style of short lines.

when all has been lost
I know I am crossed
something that was wrongly done
so disappointed
friendship is ceded
and trust has been abandon

time will help heal wound
like in battleground
rise above difficulties
move on that’s the best
for I know I’m blessed
more happy thoughts to appease
