Licentia Rhyme Form

The Licentia Rhyme Form, a poetic form created by Laura Lamarca, consists of at least 3 12-line stanzas with 11 syllables per line. Of course, the poem can be elongated adding on to the following rhyme scheme: aabbccddeeAA, BBffgghhiiAA, CCjjkkllmmAA

The Licentia Rhyme Form is named after Laura Lamarca's signature, "La" and "Licentia" is Latin for "Freedom".


Example:
Captured Moments

Capturing these moments that were lost in time,
Painting images with words of written rhyme;
Emanating emotions that I once felt
And tainted regrets upon which I once dwelt.
A carte blanche canvas to utter in verse,
Of gladness and torment, my need to disperse;
Creative release scribbled on these pages,
A lifetime unfolded and penned in stages.
Watercolours of loss and splashings of pain,
True smiles here and there amidst downpours of rain;
Capturing these moments that were lost in time,
Painting images with words of written rhyme.

Emanating emotions that I once felt
And tainted regrets upon which I once dwelt,
Mistakes once made that can't ever be erased
And passionate tempers that suddenly blazed.
Snapshots of concern and old feelings of fright
And happier times when I've tasted delight;
From childhood to fullness has all been scripted,
The ink of poetry from my quill, gifted.
From rainbows of hope to storm clouds blue-tinted,
I've written with truth in all works now printed;
Capturing these moments that were lost in time,
Painting images with words of written rhyme.

A carte blanche canvas to utter in verse,
Of gladness and torment, my need to disperse;
Of friendships broken that didn't pass the test
And rants of anger for the things I detest.
The loss of a lover and the deaths of friends,
Adult writes and dark writes that add to the blend;
My voice was silenced, so my pen is my tongue
To retell ghosts of past that on me have clung.
Experiences of life scrawled on a sheet,
Survivor of woe, I don't suffer defeat;
Capturing these moments that were lost in time,
Painting images with words of written rhyme.
