    The MONOTETRA is a poem written in stanzas of four (quatrains), with each line in tetrameter and each stanza is monorhymed (thus the name, monotetra). The other requirement of the form is that the fourth line of each stanza is a repeated dimeter phrase, giving the poem a very songlike quality.

    Example by Michael Walker:

    My Darling Dear, My Heart

    My darling dear, come hold my hand
    I'll try to make you understand
    That love again, some day you can
    If time will stand, if time will stand

    I know, my dear, he broke your heart
    (I'd like to tear his limbs apart,
    And that would only be the start)
    It hurts my heart, it hurts my heart
