1. The form divides into three sections. There should be no enjambment over these sections. They are as follows:
a) The first part is a triplet which ryhmes a,b,a. This section sets the theme for the content of the sonnet and is formed as a statement.
b) The second section is an octave rhyming b,c,c,d,b,b,d,e this elborates on the theme and enhances it.
c) The final triplet rhymes f,e,f. This provides the resolution of the sonnet in a similar fashion to the final couplet in a Shakespearian Sonnet.
2. The poem should be constructed using Iambic Pentameter.
