The stornello is an Italian poetic form that is made up of tercets (three-line stanzas) with 11 syllables per line all ending in the same sound, aaa.

This is a fun form to work with that will stretch you as you come up with words to fit all the syllables and then finding endings that are all the same.

Look for my own stornello poem that will be posted later today.
