    An ITALIAN MADRIGAL is love song/verse written in either seven or eight-syllable lines made up of two or three triplets followed by one or two rhyming couplets.

    There is no set rhyme scheme for the triplets.

    Example by Jacquii Cooke:

    Embittered Pill

    Oh! That cobblestones of Venice
    Would know the subtle of our plight;
    The woe that night gods did lend us

    Such a turmoiled 'mor wooed in sight.
    Neither stroked, nor caressed yearning,
    Nor adulations' silent cry.

    Neither stoked, nor excite churning;
    Hungry eyes emeraldly warm,
    For ne'er did'st thy know such burning.

    City of love - all fare and calm
    Do'st thou knowest not love's sweet balm?

    City of love - sitting 'pon hill
    Shall you 'knowledge such bitter pill!
