Today at DVerse, Frank is challenging us to write a rhyme royal, also known as a Chaucerian stanza. It is written usually in iambic pentameter, with a rhyme scheme of abababcc. I am really enjoying this form!
I stand in line awaiting morning brew,
It’s overpriced but its aroma calls,
Anticipating dark roast, my go-to,
Especially in the morning air of fall.
Yes, coffee is the greatest drink of all,
It greets me every morning with the sun.
I hope that I can sleep when day is done!
