This week’s prompt: write a Rispetto (Italian for Respect)
Definition: A Rispetto, an Italian form of poetry, is a complete poem of two rhyming quatrains or one 8-line stanza (octave) with meter. The meter is usually iambic tetrameter with a rhyme scheme of abab ccdd or abababcc.
A Heroic Rispetto is written in Iambic pentameter, usually featuring the same rhyme scheme.
It is typically an amorous poem, hence the name respect.
Write about something you are quite fond of (even an inanimate object) or you love.
