Where can i find examples of this ryhme scheme used by english writing poets? i saw it in dante's divine comedy and i'd like to see more.

btw its like
aba bcb cdc ded
the last stanza can either be
e or ee
Just because I play the drums doesn't mean I suck at guitar, or ams that I's iz stoopidz.

Space that ain't yours
Google it.

Man I remember when we did a comp in the contests forum on that,

And I had to do a poem using Terza Rima about the civil war in Chad.

Man that was hard. That damn Calum.
if i remember correctly from the frontier of writing by heaney is in terza rima, though thats me thinking back and possibly misremembering.

however, its worth pointing out that it isn't found that much in english for the same reason that many rhyme schemes popularised in italian aren't found much in english; rhymes are much more common in italian, which makes a scheme easier to maintain.
my name is matt. you can call me that if you like.
