The rules for the quaters are as followes.

Four stanzas

The fists line fo fists repeats on the secnd line of the secomd stanza, on the third line of the thrid stanza and the fourth of the foruth stanza. ANAPHORA WAS CORRECT.

The syllabic count is of 8 syllables per line.
That is where you messed up a bit.

Also you must separate the stanzas.

But I must admit I love the topic.

How about some revisions and I'll give you the remaining star?

You got it Montgomery

You just did not separate your stanzas.
Usually eight syllables, I am not sure a requirement, was not adhered to but quite well done I think.
separation into quatrains (four line stanzas) would make it clear.
Thanks Michael

I see what is going on....

Quatrains --- Quaterns SEE THE DIFFERENCE?

Is this the way you want?

I think this is how you want it? I'm not totally sure if it has to be eight syllables a line so I didn't change that. Tell me if I need to and I will!

quatern rules

1. Syllabic count: 8 per line
2. Number of stanzas: 4
3. Numbers of lines per stanza: 4
4. Apaphora repeats first line of first stanza on the second of secon, third of third and foruth of fourth.

Please notice that quaterns are different from quatrains.

It is extremely important that the rules to the challenges are read, as this challenge is a lesson also in this type of genre.

You did well at separating the stanzas but the syllabic count still needs work.

Topic wise as imentioned before I am very pleased.
