Bio: Eve Roper

I grew up in Texas, where I developed a love for art.
At twenty-one I moved to a small town in Oregon with my family.
And I opened my own small business creating signs and oil paintings.
At thirty-eight I decided to go back to school
and attended college taking a course in Early Childhood Education.
Upon graduating I started teaching
and worked in the school system for sixteen years
as well as teaching “Prep” in the Catholic Church.
I had to quit work due to health issues and
ten years later I started painting and writing poetry.
My husband passed in August 29, 2018 and
I now reside in Texas with my children and grandchildren.


Pantoum Rhyme

Blog Posted:12/28/2019 11:59:00 AM

Typically, a pantoum is made up of two rhyming couplets, however, Western writers altered and adapted the form, the importance of rhyming and brevity diminished. So, pantoums do not need to rhyme.


Please don't let the pantoum rhyme scare you;  there are so many intimidated by the form..

it is so simple if you follow my  outline. Some are not going to my site to follow the instruction.  

Create your 10 syllable per line poem using    

A/B/A/B  C/C   D/D  rhyme scheme. 

It will make your  poem flow well. I like telling a story when I write one.

Then number each line  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8  and so on depending on how many stanzas you're going to write. 

In a pantoum  the lines will look like this at the bottom.  It is easier if you cut and paste in the order it is supposed  to be, this way you know each line will be perfect,  word for word.The punctuation is the only thing that can be changed, but not the words.  When you are done to submit your poem remember to remove the numbers and letters.  

1 A

2 B                   1st  stanza 

3 A

4 B  



5C                    2nd stanza




5 C

7 D                    3rd stanza

6 C

8 D   


7 D

3 A                     4th stanza

8 D  

1 A 


I hope this is a little clearer.

these are the sites I will accept

Hello, Beata, I hope this help.. I have found out that if you use these sites for rhyming it will give you more of a variety to choose from. The syllable count is different on this site and How many syllables so , I strictly stay with how many syllable website . I do want to thank you for reading my blog. Hugs Eve
