The Trijan Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of three 9-line stanzas, for a total of 27 lines. Line 1 is the same in all three stanzas, although a variation of the form is not to repeat the same line at the beginning of each stanza. In other words, the beginning line of each stanza can be different. The first four syllables of line 5 in each stanza are repeated as the double-refrain for lines 7 and 8. The Trijan Refrain is a rhyming poem with a set meter and rhyme scheme as follows:
Rhyme scheme: a/b/a/b/c/c/d,d refrain of first 4 words of line five /c
Meter: 8/6/8/6/8/8/4,4 refrain/8

The glose or glosa is an interesting Spanish form that reminds me a bit of the golden shovel or cento. The basic premise is that you quote four lines of poetry as an epigraph from another poem or poet. These four lines act as a refrain in the final line of the four stanzas written by the poet. So the first line of the epigraph would be the final line of the first stanza, the second line ends the second stanza, etc.
The most common convention is for each of these stanzas to be ten lines in length. There are no other hard and fast rules for rhymes or syllables, though line length is usually consistent within the poem (so the epigraph kind of sets the line length).
The cro cumaisc etir casbairdni ocus lethrannaigecht is an Irish poetic form, which means there are quite a few rules about rhyming and syllables (plus, it has a really long name). But, like other Irish poetic forms, it's fun once you get the rules down.
Here are the guidelines:
Quatrain (or four-line) stanzas
Seven syllables in lines one and three; five syllables in lines two and four
Lines one and three end with a three-syllable word
The rinnard is an Irish poetic form. It has the following guidelines:
Quatrain (or four-line) poem (or stanzas).
Two-syllable rhymes at the end of each line.
Rhyme scheme for each quatrain: abcb.
The "a" and "c" words consonate with the "b" words.
Usually an aicill rhyme between lines three and four.
Note on aicill rhyme: An aicill rhyme in this poem means that the final syllable of line three rhymes somewhere in line four (usually the middle). While I tried in my example below, I came up just a tad short--unless we want to really slant the rhyme of "fever/heated" in the first stanza.
A light verse form invented by Ogden Nash. Nashers, named after Ogden Nash, are couplets (of any length) that feature comical rhymes, including wrenched rhymes. The popular wrenched rhyme example (also mentioned in Edward Hirsch's A Poet's Glossary) is from Nash's poem "Kindly Unhitch That Star, Buddy," in which he rhymes "rhinestones" with "ghrinestones."
Light rhyme designates a weakened, or unaccented, rhyme that pairs a stressed final syllable with an unstressed one. A rhyme of this kind is also referred to as a wrenched rhyme since the pronunciation of the unstressed syllable is forced into conformity with the stressed syllable of its rhyme mate (eternity/free). Light rhymes are commonly found in music where words are sung with an unnatural emphasis on the final syllable.
Flamenca, also known as the seguidilla gitana or Gypsy seguidilla, a Spanish quintain form.
The flamenca is a Spanish quintain (or 5-line stanza) form with a staccato rhythm meant to replicate the click of heels by flamenco dancers. The flamenca goes by a few other names, including seguidilla gitana (or Gypsy seguidilla), playera, and/or sequiriya.
Here are basic guidelines of the flamenca:
lines 1, 2, 4, and 5 have 6 syllables
line 3 has 5 syllables
lines 2 and 5 assonate
Variation: Lines 3 and 4 may be combined to make an 11-syllable line and quatrain (or 4-line) stanza.
Dating to the thirteenth century, the terza rima (Italian for “third rhyme”) is a classic form of writing poetry in three-line stanzas called tercets, which are interlinked by their rhyming pattern. They use the ending sound from each tercet’s middle line, as the first and third of the next, creating the pattern (aba, bcb, cdc, ded, and so on). There is no limit to the number of tercet stanzas that can be used.
The terza rima is often credited to the Italian poet Dante Alighieri (1265-1321). He was the first to use the form to create a popular recorded epic, The Divine Comedy, but it was probably based on tercet poems and songs performed by the Provencal troubadours of his day.
Geoffrey Chaucer introduced the terza rima to England with his poem “Complaints to his Lady,” but it was truly popularized by Thomas Wyatt through both translations and original works. It became a favorite style for many of the English romantic poets of the 19th century.
Originally, terza rimas were written in eleven syllable lines (hendecasyllable), however any meter can be used as long as it is consistent throughout. Most written in English, are done using iambic lines, with either pentameter or tetrameter being the most common.
