Echo Sonnet

A “new poetic form” created by Jeff Green is based on the Kyrielle sonnet,
like the Kyrielle sonnet it has 3 quatrains and a couplet all ending with the
same line  (or a similar developing line ending with the same rhyming word)
also like the Kyrielle sonnet the first line is also the
penultimate (second to last) line.
Unlike the KS however the poem is decasyllabic (ideally iambic pentameter)
and the rhyme scheme is a*bbA accA addA a*A.
a*, a and A lines all rhyme and a* and A lines are the repeating lines

Example Poem:
Tell Me of Your Anger in Whispers (Echo  Sonnet)
Should you be moved to speak in anger, dear,
Is it essential now that blame be found;
will such proceed toward a common ground?
Remember, love makes anger disappear.
Harsh words once thrown will travel like a spear.
Delay such words, for they can surely wait.
Give time for impulse anger to abate.
Remember, love makes anger disappear.
Received in love the message will be clear.
My love, use whispers closely late tonight.
I love you, honey; I will make it right.
Remember, love makes anger disappear.
Should you be moved to speak in anger dear
Remember, love makes anger disappear.
