Forgive and forget in rhythm
Fiery fight and make up with him
Three is always a crowd she says
Casualty of his flaws and frizz are all hidden
To forgive at hand is flowing
Colour of the furnace blowing
Will she forget for unity?
Could never be hers truthfully so get going*

The Florette, created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more 4-line stanzas.
Rhyme scheme: a,a,b,a
Fourth line requirement of internal (b) rhyme scheme, on syllable 8.
Like the outgrowing of a small flower, the forth line of each stanza is longer, and enwraps the previous lines. Line #4 requires an internal rhyme scheme that rhymes the eighth syllable with the end of line #3, and continues to add on four more syllables than the other lines so that the fourth line ends rhyming with lines #1 and #2.
