It's a short form with only five lines, one for each letter in "Frost".
I made it short because some of Frost's best-known poetry are short pieces.
I also wanted it to be versatile and open, so I decided that it would follow either a syllable count or a word-count.
(I based the counts on the corresponding numbers for F-R-O-S-T on a phone dial)
The basic line-up goes like this:
I decided (thinking "easy as A-B-C") that the rhyming scheme to be simple and loose, but still constructive. The rhyming scheme can be any of these six A-B-C- variations:
A A A A A A
B A A A B B
C B B A B B
C C B B C B
C C C C C C
Here's an example using the rhyme scheme A-A-B-C-C (my favorite) in syllable count:
Wet farm fields
Golden rows such bounty yields
Land tilled by my father
and his father before him
Lives lived-out, filled-up to the brim
I also came up with an acrostic variation, which I call an aFrostic, based on the same principle of standard acrostics, but in keeping with the syllabic count.
Not as versatile as the standard Frost form, but still fun. Here's my example:
Return me to the times
Of rural farm plowing,
Snowy woods and Nature's gold
Take me back there, forever more
I hope others will give these a try.
After all, who can resist 'Frosting'? (LOL!)
