I just discovered the huitain. It is a Spanish form that has eight lines, and each line has eight syllables. The rhyme scheme is ababbcbc.
It snowed eight inches, snowed some more,
until our land was turned to white.
We couldn’t open up our door
because of winter’s active night.
Now sun shines on this lovely sight
and melts the snow to rivulets.
Has winter taken its last bite?
What do you think? Let’s make our bets!
OK, OK, so it’s not the best poem in the world, but at least it gives you an idea of how a huitain should go.
Let’s submit some more. I’d love to see what you can come up with.
