    Developed by American William Carlos Williams, the TRIVERSAN STANZA is a variable accentual form of verse having between generally two and four beats in a line.

    Though the syllable count is not mandated, the concept of the triversan stanza is to have a sentence with three phrases. Each phrase is a line. The whole verse is one sentence.

    The TRIVERSAN is an entire poem; A 6-stanza poem made up of triversan stanzas.

    There is no particular rhyme scheme for the triversan poem.

    Example by Unknown Author:


    Watch his magic sparkling
    brighter than wine in a lover's
    face, dripping in fire glow.

    He came dragging his
    case of bottled dreams
    opening each with his white teeth

    Standing on the dusty head
    of the road you used to
    live on but forgotten its name.

    Drawing faces in the air
    that hang as if on silver wires
    oozing to the ground to die.

    His face moves like yours
    how you know your fate
    rests in amber bottles.

    How he shatters your faith
    with every newly opened
    magical wave of his hand.
