About This Page

Pantoum Poems. Examples of Pantoums and a list of poems in the correct poetic form and technique. Share and read Pantoum poetry while accessing rules, topics, ideas, and a comprehensive literary definition of a Pantoum.

Brief Definition

A key feature of the Pantoum style is that each poem is comprised of four or more stanzas, with the second and final line of each stanza repeating as the first and third line of the following stanza. The uniqueness of this form of poetry allows for duplicating lines to have different meanings depending on the context of the verse in which they are featured. Most Pantoums consist of four stanzas, although more may be used, and it is common to repeat the first and third line from the first verse in the final stanza.

Imperfect Pantoums may also be seen, in these cases, the final stanza does not use the first and third line from the initial verse and instead introduces new lines following the same theme. In the imperfect Pantoum, the verses may instead follow a rhyming template in place of repeating lines between the verses.
