Rhupunt: Where Rivers Flow

I want to go
Where rivers flow
And it won’t snow
Show me the way

Where fish will bite
Until the night
And they will fight
To get away

I’ll fry some fish
Place on a dish
So make a wish
And eat today

It tasted good
I knew it would
Just like it should
No more to say

I want to go where rivers flow and it won’t snow show me the way
Where fish will bite until the night and they will fight to get away
I’ll fry some fish place on a dish so make a wish and eat today
It tasted good I knew it would just like it should no more to say

The Rhupunt is a Welsh poetic form with some rigid rules
mixed with a little leeway for variations. With the tight four syllable
lines and continuous rhyming, humor works especially well.

Here are the guidelines for the Rhupunt:
The form can be broken down into lines or stanzas
Each line or stanza contains 3 to 5 sections
Each section has 4 syllables
All but the final section rhyme with each other
The final section of each line or stanza rhyme
with the final section of the other lines or stanzas.
