Sharing a new classical poetry form via Paul’s Poetry Playground. The Cascada Viente was created by the very talented poet, writer, and blogger Brad Osborne and his wonderful blog Commonsensibly Speaking.

The cascada viente is a twenty line poem containing five stanzas of four lines a piece (quatrains). It is isosyllabic with no required meter and has seven syllables per line. Its rhyme scheme consists of cascading alternate doubles and can be expressed as abab bcbc cdcd dede efef.

Give it a try and let Paul and Brad know how you liked it.
