Patterns of Rhymes--By Yancy Dalton--United States

Patterns of Rhymes
(Sonnet & triodyne monorhyme)
Poets select many patterns of rhyme
Choice selected by some are so patterned 
They do every other line as rhyme prime
Rhyme in trading each line into patterns

Yet the most popular rhymes every time
Each rhyme to every second one combined
Both kinds used in a sonnet type styling
Writers influencing readers, smiling

Some unique rhymers write in triodynes
So each rhyming line fits the subject lines
Even to point they can use monorhymes

It’s up to each author’s choice at all times
Picking subjects of writer-reader rhymes

Yancy Dalton grew up on a cattle ranch riding, roping, and branding calves. He started writing poetry after college, church mission, and marriage.  When he first started writing online, the name "Yancy" was often taken for a girl's name. So, he made up a pen name to progress as a poet called "Knight Writer."


  1. Hi Yancy. I enjoyed "Patterns of Rhymes." Thank you for sharing it and continued blessings!


    1. Thanks Maurice,
      It was hard to make it into a sonnet style.
      I'm happy you enjoyed it.

  2. Dear Knight Writer,

    Rhymed poetry isn't that easy. And all these poetry forms! You wrote a nice piece about the poet's way. Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes,

    1. Dear Inge,

  4. Yancy,
    A good sonnet. I am just curious what is triodyne mean?

  5. Thanks David,
    To me triodyne means short three line poem with a title.
    I invented it because thought I like Haiku's, I do not like lack of a title. Triodyne's have a title & the words define the title. One can make it longer by using three more lines. Thus you get double triodyens, triple triodynes, & on & on.
