It's a quiz. I never knew there were so many types. I hope you guys enjoy it.
http://quiz.ravenblack.net/poeticform.pl


Here's my result:

I am free verse,
and know the rules,
and use them -
when they suit me,
which admittedly
tends not to be the case.
Authority,
tradition, laws;
very much not
my sort
of thing,
I fear.
Perhaps, on occasion,
I go too far in the opposite direction,
and shun the accepted merely because it's accepted,
accepting its opposite merely because it isn't;
but since it's clearly
better that than
being normal;
well,
why
not?

I'm terza rima, and I talk and smile.
Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away
I let mine out, and chatter all the while.

I'm rarely on my own - a wasted day
Is any day that's spent without a friend,
With nothing much to do or hear or say.

I like to be with people, and depend
On company for being entertained;
Which seems a good solution, in the end.


Heh, cool!

Blessed Be Thee!

I am heroic couplets; most precise
And fond of order. Planned and structured. Nice.
I know, of course, just what I want; I know,
As well, what I will do to make it so.
This doesn't mean that I attempt to shun
Excitement, entertainment, pleasure, fun;
But they must keep their place, like all the rest;
They might be good, but ordered life is best.

terza rima...

guess I should learn how to write one, but I'd probably rumple up the paper and throw it AT the garbage can...

Okay, it said I was a 'heroic couplet', or a triolet (I hope it didn't say toilet).  However, I think it is wrong.  I think I'm a free verse....  What do y'all think I am?

Well if I'm going to be a terza rima, at least the company is good...never figgered me for that...it did give me an option to be a sonnet, but if I came in saying that, Nan would get out her eraser....

Well, in terza rima, it's obvious that the stanzas are always in the tercet (3-line grouping). The rhyming pattern is kinda weird. it is AbA BcB CdC DeD EfE etc. depending on howlong it is. The three line of the stanzas and the rhyme pattern linking the tsanzas together are said to have an indirect reference to the Trinity. A good example is Dante's Divine Comedy. Hmmm, der are a lot of terza rima people here. maybe we'll get more diversity lata on. Anyway, i retook the quiz. I got free verse like 8 out of 10 times. The other 2 said I'm a haiku. Both suit me quite well

Well given that the poem that suits freeverse is whacked anyway - all this mumbo-jumbo about breaking rules like it's a form of poetry for delinquints I'm not surprised that freeverse poets aren't emerging with freeverse personalities..

the point of freeverse is that there ARE no rules...sheesh - there's a difference..

At any rate I'm a descort...nice word...

Lotta Terza- Terza- er, Terza-Whatsits (heh, can't remember! Too early!) Well, at least I have company! Though I've never written, read, or even heard of a Terza-whatever-it's-called before this.

Haiku.

Short, terse, unfriendly,
Yet sometimes quite emotive;
I am the Haiku.


Wait a sec! Am I really unfriendly?

I look and I listen, does not everyone?

I am the tanka.
The attention of others
Is unnerving, and
Since I try not to draw it,
I'm left alone. Which is good

I'm terza rima, and I talk and smile.
Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away
I let mine out, and chatter all the while.

I'm rarely on my own - a wasted day
Is any day that's spent without a friend,
With nothing much to do or hear or say.

I like to be with people, and depend
On company for being entertained;

LMFAO! yeah, rightio - I'm such a people person and all.

Okay, did it again and now I'm really confused:

Ottava rima? Me? That can't be right!
   Too frivolous? But tut, there's no such thing!
Let others ponder thoughts of wrong and right,
   Or sit and think how much they love the spring;
I'd rather spend my time in gleeful spite,
   Or maybe laugh, or maybe sit and sing.
Besides, it might be fun to be inspiring -
But surely it would get so very tiring.</td></tr></table>

Well, looks like I am a Terza Rima. Or, if I wasn't a Terza Rima, I would be a Rubai. I guess I better get to learning these two forms. Help, Nan! I am in distress!
