~::~ Unfettered Dreams ~::~

The monotetra is a new poetic form developed by Michael Walker. Each stanza contains four lines

in monorhyme. Each line is in tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of eight syllables. What makes

the monotetra so powerful as a poetic form, is that the last line contains two metrical feet, repeated.

It can have as few as one or two stanzas, or as many as desired.

Stanza Structure:

Line 1: 8 syllables; A1

Line 2: 8 syllables; A2

Line 3: 8 syllables; A3

Line 4: 4 syllables, repeated; A4, A4

~::~ Unfettered Dreams ~::~


Long are my days and lonely nights

Torn forlorn unearthly twilights

Waking at unsettling midnights

My soul’s a plight.. My soul’s a plight..


Few silent tears escape my eyes

As hopelessness begins to rise

Confounded mind asks many whys

My heart defies… My heart defies


Despondency in my life screams

A single silver lining gleams..

Of blooming meadows and sun beams

Unfettered dreams… Unfettered dreams




Phew 😀
