Tremor

I can still feel my cheeks ablaze

when i think of his roaming gaze

My blood does simmer

When his eyes shimmer

I tremor

as always

Clogyrnach

Besides being another fun form to say, clogyrnach is also a fun poem to write. This Welsh poetic form is typically a six-line syllabic stanza with an ab rhyme scheme:

Line 1: 8 syllables with an a rhyme
Line 2: 8 syllables with an a rhyme
Line 3: 5 syllables with a b rhyme
Line 4: 5 syllables with a b rhyme
Line 5: 3 syllables with a b rhyme
Line 6: 3 syllables with an a rhyme

Note: Thereโ€™s also a variant that combines lines 5 and 6 into one lineโ€“making a 5-line stanza
