This form was created by Willam J. Reed IV, writing on Allpoetry as BluesMan.

The author provided no other specifications than that the poem must consist of six or more tercets, but in his sample poem the first two lines were shorter than the third.

Rhyme pattern aab ccb dde ffe ggh iif

For my template I have use tri-meter and tetrameter, generally iambic.

THIS IS NOT A NEW rhyme pattern but merely a treatment of either the Alouette, or the form we call the Bush Ballad Meter. Both of which use the same rhyme pattern and line length differentiation, but in sestets as opposed to tercets.
