A terza rima consists of stanzas of three lines (or tercets) usually in iambic pentameter. It follows an interlocking rhyming scheme, or chain rhyme. This is where the middle of each stanza rhymes with the first and last line of the following stanza (ABA, BCB, CDC) and ends with a rhyming couplet.

Thank you Apeksha Rai, for if not for your blog I wouldn’t have known what a terza rima is. Your blog post inspired me to try my hand at one. I’d like to think I was able to do some justice, though I’d love to hear your opinion πŸ™‚ (good or bad)


Why, she thought for all the ways she could fight it
After all it was her choice, her path

Yet she tried all she could to not admit,


She wasn’t trying to get out unscathed,

For she knew freedom didn’t come without a price

But she also wanted to be sure, forgot she wasn’t doing math


It had her enticed,

The charm, the sheer beauty of it all,

But it also scared her, yet there was no time to think twice


She knew she was in this for the long haul,

For she was not one to back out

She knew she had to lower her high walls,



She wanted to say it out loud and shout,

For she finally found the one and had no doubt.

      1. Why, she thought for all the ways she could fight it
        After all it was her choice, her path

        Yet she tried all she could to not admit,

        These are your first three lines and which are all the rhyming words here according to the terza?
        now you got it right?
        maybe we have to take the poem as a whole and compare right?
