Air Of You



Wind in the trees,
Wind in your hair.
A lovely breeze;
Cool flowing air.

Your eyes of green,
Like leaves of grass,
Have a fair sheen
As clear as glass.

Wind chimes clatter,
Waltzing in wind,
The sounds splatter
Rhyming within.

Scents are carried,
Bouquet of smells,
Though yours vary
Casting their spells.



This, I believe, is my own poetic structure of a poem form.
I call it a ‘ Tetrad Quatrain ‘. It consists of four stanzas that
Each have four lines and each line only has four syllables.
