Photo Challenge #362 – Erotic game to play

Such an erotic game to play

Found her just waiting at the quay

Soft light shining at her masked face

Chiming my heart with all her grace to make my day

Am I so tame or am I lame?

Tethered to this dream just the same

Getting the sign from the card drawn

One moment and then she was gone and that’s a shame*

The Florette, created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more 4-line stanzas.

Rhyme scheme: a,a,b,a
Meter: 8,8,8,12
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.
