Brief Definition

A Quintella is a type of poem that originates from Spanish speaking countries, and often follows a specific structure. Combinations of a quintella can be in the form of the following: aabba or abbaa. A quintella will also often take the form of an iambic tetrameter or a poem that consists of eight-syllable scheme or structure. However, in this specific structure or form, there can only be two lines that can have the same or similar rhyming schemes within the poem, and, in turn, the other three lines will also have a rhyming scheme with each other as well.

 When breaking up the word quintella, we see that it is a derived from the words 'quin', which means five in the Spanish language, and 'stella', which means star. In terms of a quintella in poetry, it is often a poem that is made up of five lines, fitting of the name. 

Quintella Poem Example

I Fell in Love With a Tree Stump

I fell in love with a tree stump.
A quite curious stump was he.
No branches to thump.
No fall leaves to see.
But a very special stump was he.

There in the woods, other trees grew tall.
Swaying their limbs and leaves in the breeze.
But one special tree stump won my awe.
Once, tall and stately was he, before the freeze.
Now, short and sad hearted because of the saw.

I was weary, downhearted, and lonely.
When, I spotted that stump beside a pile of wood.
A perfect place to rest, it seemed to me.
I rushed right over as quickly as I could. 
Then, sat right there, relaxed, and feeling so good.

While trees all around made their showy stance,
I sat and enjoyed from my comfortable stump.
He had no limbs nor leaves to wind-dance.
He had no branches to thump.
He was there for me to rest myself…by chance.

Pining alone, I fell in love with that tree stump.
A quiet refuge was he.
No longer sad, life became plump.
And my soul soared higher than one can see.
For he was there when I needed him…and he needed me.
