This form is a bit of a mess borrowed from the Greeks.
Non-native forms dont often translate well in new languages. It is a quatrain form. Described in the technical terms of meter, the first two lines
contain an acephelous iamb, two trochees, and two dactyls; the third line is an acephelous iamb and four trochees; and the last is two dactyls and two trochees.
The form is unrhymed.
