    Originally from the French, the RIMAS DISSOLUTAS is a syllabic form where the rhymes within stanzas do not rhyme, but the same line rhymes in all stanzas (also known as an external rhyme pattern.) It is syllabic of any one length (isosyllabic lines). The stanzas can have any number of lines.

    Example by Bob Newman:

    excerpt from Musings

    Calliope, presiding as chief Muse
    Inspires, when she gets up a head of steam,
    To epic poetry and eloquence,
    The lifeblood – she’d claim - of the universe.

    Her sister Clio endlessly reviews
    The whorls and eddies in time’s muddy stream.
    From such historical intelligence
    Her poets conjure up heroic verse.
