    The Italian form Strambotto Toscano consists of eight strict 11-syllable lines and is often set to music. Generally the strambotto toscano, whose stanza is known as rispetto or ottava rima, is used in as a "stand-alone" poetic form. It can be used as a multi-stanzaic form (as in a song), by connecting each stanza with a refrain, or using the last line of each stanza as the beginning line of the next.

    There are variations on this form: Strambotto Siciliano & Strambotto Romagnuolo.
    **Both consist of 11 syllables. The rhyme scheme is seen below**

    Example by Ryter Roethicle

    excerpt Amava Sempre (Always Loved)

    There is a corner at the end of the sky,
    Where each night a single star sits all alone.
    That is our star, the one we always wish by.
    Together in spite of all that fate has thrown,
    We have always loved, time’s no mystery.
    Some lives we forget until the path is shown,
    And when it is dim, you cannot see the same,
    Until there is a flicker, that lights the flame.
