Loop Poetry

Created by Hellon, loop poetry has unlimited stanzas and no set syllable count. In each stanza the last word of each line becomes the first word of the next with a rhyme scheme of abcb.


1. Stanzas, writers choice on the number, no rhyming, the last word, first word scheme is maintained.

2. One long stanza, no limit on number of lines, no rhyming scheme, the last word, first word scheme
is maintained.

3. Couplets mixed with 4 line stanzas, the last word, first word scheme is maintained in the stanzas.
It can also be used in the couplets. Rhyme scheme is ab, cc, defg, hh, ii, jklm, nn, oo.

As :

The last to fall
Fall beneath
Beneath sorrow
Sorrow underneath

Underneath pain
Pain of lost love
Love that I gave
Gave all till now.
