    The IDYLL, also spelled IDYL, poem is one which depicts a peaceful, idealized country scene, or long poems that tell a story about ancient heroes.

    There is no particular set stanza/line or rhyme scheme for an idyll.

    Example 1 by Alfred, Lord Tennyson:

    excerpt from Ulysses

    It little profits that an idle king,
    By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
    Match'd with an agèd wife, I mete and dole
    Unequal laws unto a savage race,
    That hoard, and sleep, and feed, and know not me.
    ----
    ----

    Example 2 by Christopher Marlowe:

    excerpt from The Passionate Shepherd to His Love

    Come live with me and be my Love,
    And we will all the pleasures prove
    That hills and valleys, dale and field,
    And all the craggy mountains yield.
