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
