We have enjoyed reading and composing Quatrains!

We have enjoyed reading and analysing some of Banjo Patterson’s poetry. Two of the poems we have enjoyed are quatrains titled ‘Weary Will’ and ‘A dog’s Mistake’.

We’ve learned that a rhyming quatrain is a set of four lines that follow a rhyme scheme. The rhyme schemes could be:

AABB (the first and second lines rhyme with each other and the third and fourth lines rhyme with each other. In other words, a pair of rhyming couplets together)

ABAB (the first and third lines rhyme with each other and the second and fourth lines rhyme with each other)

ABBA (the first and fourth lines rhyme with each other and the second and third rhyme with each other)

ABCB (the second and fourth rhyme with each other)

We would love to share some of the quatrains we have written.
