Brief Definition

A Quatern is a type of poem that involves the repetition of the first line throughout the text. There are sixteen lines in total in this type of poem. If you break down the poem into sets of four you will see the pattern begining to emerge.

In the second set, the second line of that set is actually the first line of the poem. In the third set, the third line of the poem is the first line. And for the fourth set, the line repeated is at the end. 

Quatern Poem Example

A Bicycle in the Wind

On a bicycle, freedom's flight Pedaling 'cross the horizon Reflections of blue in my sight With dreams of lassoing the sun A girl's spinning wheels leave the ground On a bicycle, freedom's flight O'er the treetops without a sound Veils of darkness fall out of sight Wishing in the morning star's light Bright tomorrows, I wait to greet On a bicycle, freedom's flight My pink beauty with flowered seat Dark days return and tides do rise Still, memories soothe in the night Two wheels like wings of butterflies On a bicycle, freedom's flight
