86. oldal - The Assyrian came down like the wolf on the fold, And his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold; And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea, When the blue wave rolls nightly on deep Galilee. Like the leaves of the forest when summer is green, That host with their banners at sunset were seen: Like the leaves of the forest when autumn hath blown, That host on the morrow lay withered and strown.

116. oldal - free verse," open form poetry does not conform to established patterns of meter, rhyme, and stanza. Such poetry derives its rhythmic qualities from the repetition of words, phrases, or grammatical structures, the arrangement of words on the printed page, or by some other means. The poet EE Cummings wrote open form poetry; his poems do not have measurable meters, but they do have rhythm. What distinguishes open form poems is that they do not develop regular patterns with regard to lines, meter, rhythm...
121. oldal - The rhyme order proceeds abab; bcbc; and so on until the last stanza, which might be represented as zaza. The second and fourth lines of each stanza, except the last, are used as the first and third of the succeeding stanza.
