~::~ Dream Boat ~::~


~::~ Dreamy Boat ~::~

 

On dark foggy night

Sailing surreal boat

Twinkly stars, Moon bright

In dreams I’m afloat

 

Sailing surreal boat

O’er moors hills vales

Envious birds, I gloat

Leaving wispy trails

 

Twinkly stars, moon bright

Gliding past valleys, seas

Panoramic sights

Magical carpet flees

 

In dreams I’m afloat

Light feathery gait

A pink horizon coat

Lovely dawn awaits

Quadrilew

Created by C. G. V. Lewis, the Quadrilew is a form of quatrain poem with an abab rhyming scheme,

repeating lines, and contains an alternating syllable structure. In the first verse, the poet may either start with a five or six syllable line.  If the choice is five then the ‘sounding’ syllable count is (and opposite if the count is six):

 VERSE ONE,

Line 1, 5 syllables.

Line 2, 6 syllables.

Line 3, 5 syllables.

Line 4, 6 syllables.

 VERSE TWO,

Line 1, (which is a REPEAT of line 2 of the FIRST verse) has 6 syllables.

Line 2 new line of 5 syllables

Line 3 new line of 6 syllables

Line 4 new line of 5 syllables.

 VERSE THREE,

Line 1, (which is a REPEAT of line 3 of the first verse) has 5 syllables.

Line 2 new line of 6 syllables.

Line 3 new line of 5 syllables.

Line 4 new line of 6 syllables.

 VERSE FOUR,

Line 1, (which is a REPEAT of line 4 of the first verse) has 6 syllables.

Line 2 new line of 5 syllables.

Line 3 new line of 6 syllables.

Line 4 new line of 5 syllables.

 If  the first line of verse one has 6 syllables then the pattern is

Verse 1, 6565,

Verse 2, 5656,

Verse 3, 6565,

Verse 4 5656:  (the rhyme pattern still being abab.)
