OctPoWriMo Day 6 – Signed, sealed and delivered

Signed, sealed and delivered, my love

My wishes and desire above

Travelling, reading and true love

All of above, all of above

The hows and the whys all addressed

Step by step that is the quest

Count my blessing for I am blessed

To do my best, to do my best*

The monotetra is a new poetic form developed by Michael Walker. Each stanza contains four lines in monorhyme. Each line is in tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of eight syllables. What makes the monotetra so powerful as a poetic form, is that the last line contains two metrical feet, repeated. It can have as few as one or two stanzas, or as many as desired.

Stanza Structure:

Line 1: 8 syllables; A1
Line 2: 8 syllables; A2
Line 3: 8 syllables; A3
Line 4: 4 syllables, repeated; A4, A4
