  • What is a Quatrain? A Quatrain is a poem that consists of four rhyming lines. There are many patterns you can select from, however. As you continue on with this activity, you will be able to demonstrate your ability to: 1) Recognize and name several Quatrain Patterns, 2) Correctly label Quatrain patterns, and 3) Complete Quatrains of varying patterns in preparation for creating them for your Holiday Notebook.

  • Quatrain Patterns: Just like visual patterns are pleasing to the eye, auditory patterns in Quatrains can be pleasing to the ear.

  • Quatrain Patterns: Quatrains follow an identifiable pattern based upon the last word in each line.

  • Quatrain Patterns: Lets take a look at four of those possible patterns. Click on each pattern for a sample Quatrain by a famous Poet.AABCABABABCBAABB

  • The TygerBy William BlakeTyger! Tyger! burning bright AIn the forests of the night AWhat immortal hand or eye BCould frame thy fearful symmetry? CThe first two lines end with the same sounding word so they are both called A. The third line ends with a word that doesnt rhyme so it is called B. The last line ends with a word that doesnt rhyme with A or B so it is given the letter C.
