An abbreviated sonnet in eleven lines that are arranged in two stanzas. The first has rhyme scheme abcabc, and
the second is either dbcdc or dcbdc. The very last line is indented and shorter. It is, depending on what expert describes the curtal sonnet, either described as a half-line or a single spondee. Hopkins
described it as the former, but usually executed it as the latter. It should have a pivot between the sestet and quintet.
