hearts take wing

under the stars that simmer in sky
hearts take wings and start to fly
arm in arm they walk together
hearts lost in beauty of other

Rules

1. The form is a single quatrain.

2. The rhyme scheme is a,b,a,b. This does not need to be perfect rhyme.

3. It has a fixed rhythm that it is recited to and as a result the line lengths are fixed between 8 and 12 syllables.

4. Often there is a seeming discontinuity between the first two lines and the second two lines. However on closer examination there is a linkage either in thought or the assonance of the verses.

5. There is usually a lot of allusion to either symbols, proverbs or places that would mean alot to Malay readers.
