    The SARDINE poetic style - attributed to American "The Dread Poet Roberts" - is a sonnet that uses REDONDILLA as a base. Each line is eight syllables and has the rhyme scheme abbacddceeffee or abbaabbaccddcc. It is also known as the Redondilla sonnet, the Napoleonic sonnet, or the Sonondilla.


    Example by John Godwin:

    The Mystery Sonnet

    What shall we call this sonnet form?
    A little bit of Petrarch here,
    And also Spenser. It seems clear
    It lies a bit beyond the norm.
    The meter seems a little short.
    A count of four, instead of five,
    Might make the reading more alive.
    More on this I must report.
    I wonder what the poet meant
    Who made this form? Was he intent
    On adding to the sonnet's praise,
    Or complicate the many ways
    By which a poet might be sent
    To that strange world where minds are bent?
