Samara's Garden is a poem that I wrote which experiences the life of a falling "helicopter" seed.

There are eight stanzas of four lines each. The odd lines are all 14 syllables with an internal rhyme matching the last word of that line, then, the even lines (having an internal rhyme with that last word of the odd line) all have 11 syllables and their own "last word rhyme". The meter is da da DUM da da da DUM... for all lines.

The structure of eight stanzas has been broken up into eight chapter breaks, but each stanza has had its lines split-apart in order to preserve the intent (the pacing) of each line, and thus each line may be given its own page; there may be instances, however, where managing the evolution of the poem in your mind, some lines have been split into multiple pages, or, multiple lines of a stanza remain on the same page (making it so a chapter is not necessarily equal to the count of lines of a stanza).
