    The ROMANTIC STANZA gets it's name from Bob Newman. Attributed to Maksim Bahdanovič, one of the best lyric poets of the Belarusian language, the romantic stanza has alternating quatrains. Lines one and three have eleven syllables, line two has ten, and line four is the first seven syllables of line one.

    Example by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow:

    excerpt from Daffodils

    Lonely as high-floating clouds I was hiking
    Up hill and down dale, near no madding crowds.
    It’s an environment much to my liking –
    Lonely as high-floating clouds.

    But all at once what a sight lay before me!
    Daffodils, stacks of them – what a delight!
    Flowers in ones and twos usually bore me,
    But all at once – what a sight!
