V is for Vers Beaucoup

V

The Vers Beaucoup, a poem for created by Curt Mongold, which is French for “many rhymes”. Each stanza consists of four lines with a rhyming word scheme of:

a-a-a-
a-b-b-
b-c-c-
c-d-d

Each rhyme can only use a MAXIMUM of three words. The fourth “a” rhyme carried over to the second line causes enjambment and creates a strong internal rhyming structure.

The oasis of SERENITY when I swim in the SEA and I’m FREE
Under the TREE with FRIENDS at the WEEKENDS
They’re GODSENDS, as we LAUGH and take PHOTOGRAPH
On my BEHALF, they give me their TIME until NIGHTTIME
