Huitain Notes

Jezzie G

A very old French verse form the Huitain consists of one eight-line stanza composed of ten-syllable lines. The verse is written over three rhymes and the two popular rhyme schemes are as follows:



Be thou like a rose by Ryter Roethicle

Be thou like a Rose my beloved
Let not thy thorns keep me away.
When I see thee I am resolved
So pray hold me and bid me stay.
My hasty actions thus betray
Thy womanly scent has drawn me,
Now drawn, and for my actions pay.
So helpless like the worker bee
