Carl Orff - Gassenhauer

A rhyme in time a beat

Confused then I’ll repeat

If you guessed six then neat

Next lesson should be treat


Let’s take a look at rhyme

It doesn’t rhyme with Rhine

The difference sublime

Like cheap and subtle wine


A stanza should be clear

I’ve chosen four lines here

Use more or less don’t fear

Another break is near


Now what is on your mind

Use words and beat entwined

But if you stray you’ll find

Good critics should be kind


And draw your readers in

By making their minds spin

A tear perchance a grin

In poetry no sin


I’ve left this little clue

A ditty oh it’s true

But now it’s almost through

The rest is up to you
