Pathways for the Poet by Viola Berg (1977) is a book for and by educators. Classic poetic forms as well as many invented forms which appear to have been invented as teaching tools or exercises for use in workshops or classrooms are included. Some of these invented forms I have found in use in internet poetry communities, a testament to their staying power. On this page I include the metric invented forms found there in which appear to be exclusive to the community of educators from whom Ms. Berg drew her support. I have yet to find these in any other source. …. Whether classroom exercise or sharpening your skill as a writer, some of these forms can be fun to play with.
• The Repete is an invented form similar to the Rondel. It was introduced by Viola Berg. Although it is 14 lines it does not pretend to be a sonnet.
The Repete is:
○ a quatorzain made up of an octave and a sestet.
○ metric, iambic tetrameter.
○ rhymed, turned on only 2 rhymes, rhyme scheme ABababAB ababAB
○ L1 becomes a refrain repeated L7 & L13 and L2 is a refrain repeated in L8 & L14.
