It is a very popular form of poetry and was used by many famous poets such as William Blake. This quatrain comes from The Tyger by William Blake. Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry? The pattern of the rhymes in this quatrain is the first and second line then the third and fourth line. Choose an animal and brainstorm some ideas. Add descriptive words and phrases then write two joining couplets to create a quatrain that paints a word picture of your animal.
