Because I teach poetry

I built a tool to help you.

Random Poetical Form Generator.

Choose a complexity setting, then either choose your own rules or select "choose for me" to generate a random form.

You will have to name the form yourself!

Poem Complexity

Basic--(2 to 3 rules)
Intermediate--(2 to 4 rules)
Complex--(4 to 8 rules)
Customize--choose what rules to pick from,
and how many to apply

Number of rules to apply

choose for me 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
if you don't choose enough rules, I will!

Include specific rules or decorations ("Customize" only):

Complex rhymes -- (more complex than ABAB/ABCB / AABB)
