Sicilian Sestet

Sicilian Sestet
Possessing similar origins, as the Italian Sestet, 
the Sicilian sestet had no set meter, but the 
anglicised version uses Iambic tetrameter or pentameter.

The rhyme pattern is as follows; a, b, a, b, a, b,

Example Poem

Write a Sicilian Sestet

Sicilian sestets have most simple rhyme. 
The metric foot can be both four and five,
(but not at once), just one poem at a time. 
Here pentameter iambs are alive. 
Don't strain yourself in finding rhyme like I'm. 
Just think ahead and then you can survive.
