Rime Couee

This is a French form consisting of two rhymes. First there is a rhyming couplet of normally of eight syllables then a third and shorter line of six. The two couplets rhyme as do the two shorter lines. This gives us a suggested pattern :

x x x x x x x a
x x x x x x x a
x x x x x b
x x x x x x x a
x x x x x x x a
x x x x x b
