    The ENGLYN MILWR is a tercet of lines that rhyme. Being of Welsh origin, the englyn milwr (pronounced: EN-glin MEE-loor) is generally paired with a war theme and is also called the "soldier's englyn." It is simple to construct, with each stanza consisting of three lines of seven syllables each. The end line of each line of the stanza will rhyme, and there is no limit to the number of stanzas in the poem.

    Example 1 by Jacquii Cooke:

    excerpt from A Soldier's Sound (unfinished)

    Upon the way, hallowed sound
    From the heavens to earth's mound
    Boom-thump boom! from cannon's round

    Pitter-pat of soldiers' feet
    Patt'ring fear with horrid beast
    English coming from the east

    Example 2 by Tami Krueger:


    Smoothing bolts of pastel oils,
    Starkly drawn remembered toils,'
    Fiercely revealed canvas foils,

    Intercourses' most intimate kind,
    Sharing smudge's blended find,
    Oil and canvas soon entwine,
