Ice Fountain

Frozen Fountain (2)

A fountain bubbles playfully
and faithfully behind the ice.

 


Barzelletta
15th-Century form with conflicting reports as to its use.
Some say it is a nonsense poem; others a romance.
Some say it is rhymed, but examples have been found of unrhymed Barzellettas.
Here are the characteristics that are certain: It is…
• lyrical
• stanzaic
• metered (often iambic tetrameter)
• often employs internal rhyme, but not end rhyme (xa, ax)
• written with wit and a didactic and/or aphoric (concise) tone
• often follows other stanzaic forms
