a tailored upheaval
a noisy gathering
more than a smattering
angry chants raged
The elements of the Abhanga are:
- stanzaic, written in any number of 4 line stanzas.
- syllabic, 6-6-6-4 syllables each
- rhymed L2 and L3 rhyme. Often internal rhyme is employed. End rhyme scheme x a a x , x being unrhymed.
I am trying this form that is new to me called the Abhanga. To read more about it or to participate over at Colleen’s blog go here.
