Sabrina Posted April 6, 2008 Share Posted April 6, 2008 [FONT="Tahoma"][CENTER][SIZE="3"][B]Poetry Contest - Round One [/B][/SIZE] [hr=Sienna]100[/hr] [CENTER][SIZE="4"][B]Raiha [/B]vs. [B]Rachmaninoff[/B][/SIZE] Topic: [B]Desert[/B][/CENTER] [hr=Sienna]100[/hr] [B]Triple Quatrain Poetry[/B][/CENTER] For this round you are challenged to write a triple Quatrain poem. Now a basic Quatrain is a poem that has four lines and also has a specific rhyming scheme. So for a triple Quatrain, you will be writing twelve lines in groups of four, based on the topic that you have been given. For example: [CENTER][COLOR="Sienna"][B]Topic: The Fall[/B] I love the mountains in the fall, as the leaves begin to turn. Like decorations for the ball, it makes my heart just yearn. Fall colors seem to transcend with yellow, orange, and browns. It'll soon cover all the towns with a warm and hearty blend. The cool crisp autumn air there's nothing that can compare. To this color filled wonder land what could ever be this grand.[/COLOR][/CENTER] As you can see in each section the ending lines rhyme with one of the others. And just like the poem, they do not have to be in a specific order. So long as they rhyme, it works. In theory, for this contest, the ending of each line could rhyme with every single one. Each contestant has till [COLOR="Sienna"][U][B]Friday the 11th[/B][/U][/COLOR] to get their poems in. At which time the voting will begin, sooner if both members submit their poems before the deadline. Now all members are welcome to vote include those involved. If it is the thread you are in though, only comments and critiquing is allowed since obviously you can?t vote for yourself. But definitely take the time to vote on the other entries!
