Nove Otto

The Nove Otto poetry form was created by Scott J. Alcorn. It is a nine-lined poem with 8 syllables per line (isosyllabic). The rhyme scheme is as follows: aacbbcddc.

The presented rhyme scheme, no matter who wrote it, is a corruption of the accepted standard, it should be presented as aabccbddb.

I have asked Shadow Poetry to make the correction on rhyme scheme protocol.

Restated Specifications

A nine line poem, Syllabic, 8 syllables per line
Rhyme Scheme: aabccbddb

Example Poem


The clatter of our daily life,
type-writers, doors, or fork and knife,
are processed- usually ignored
while we contend with mundane tasks.
"Where is the quiet?" we might ask.
To find it you must leave the horde,
and the devices built by men.
Commune with nature now and then.
Assuredly, you'll not be bored.
