Grace at D'Verse Poets is supporting our Poetry Form Ghazalwhich was hosted by Gay Cannon two weeks ago.
A Ghazal is a poem that is made up like an odd numberedchain of couplets, where each couplet is an independentpoem. It should be natural to put a comma at the end ofthe first line. The Ghazal has a refrain of one to threewords that repeat, and an inline rhyme that preceedes therefrain. Lines 1 and 2, then every second line, has thisrefrain and inline rhyme, and the last couplet should referto the authors pen-name…The rhyming scheme is AA bA cA dA eA etc.
