A Welsh form, the Rhupunt has some variability but is still governed by rigid form rules.
Can be written in lines or stanzas of 3 to 5 sections
Each section has 4 syllables
All but the final section rhyme with each other
The final section of each line or stanza rhymes with the final section of the other lines or stanzas
Pwyll and Rhiannon by JezzieG
Old Celtic tales echo o’er vales Pwyll, prince of Wales called for one year
To take the place in Arawn’s space with foes to face, no time for fear
Enemies slayed he meets a maid and with her laid their wedding bed
A son was born from parents torn until the dawn of truth be said
