Scupham sonnet

Type:  

Structure, Metrical Requirement, Rhyme Scheme Requirement, Isosyllabic

 
Description: 

A poem using two Scupham stanzas and a couplet as its rhyme scheme. Not a true sonnet without a pivot, but neither are some other forms in the database with sonnet in the name. While Mr. Newman doesn't explicitly list a requirement for a certain meter, iambic pentameter never hurts.
