Beginning to The Odyssey

Sing in me, Muse, and through me tell the story

Of that man skilled in all ways of contending

The wanderer, harried for years on end,

After he plundered the stronghold

On the proud height of Troy.

refrain
Refrain

A line that is repeated, repeated, repeated, repeated…like the chorus of a song.

This happens especially at the end of a stanza.

(From time to time the words can change, but a recognizable phrase must stay.)

the pasture by robert frost
The Pasture by Robert Frost

I’m going out to clean the pasture spring;

I’ll only stop to rake the leaves away

(And wait to watch the water, I may):

I shan’t be gone long.- You come too.

I’m going out to fetch the little calf

That’s standing by the mother

It totters when she licks it with her tongue

I shan’t be gone long.- You come too.

sonnet
Sonnet

A poem of fourteen lines.

-Usually rhymed

-Usually in Iambic Pentameter

Generally presents an argument, most often a romantic plea.

Shakespearian sonnets rhyme abab, cdcd, efef, gg.

sonnet 130
Sonnet 130

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;

Coral is far more red than her lips red;

If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;

If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.

I have seen roses damasked, red and white,

But no such roses see I in her cheeks;

And in some perfumes is there more delight

Than in the breath from my mistress reeks.

I love to hear her speak, yet well I know

That music hath a far more pleasing sound;

I grant I never saw a goddess go;

My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground,

And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare

As any she belied with false compare.
