An Awdl Gywydd poem is a poetic form found in Welsh literature. These are the rules of the form:
There are four lines per stanza
Each line contains seven syllables
The final syllable of the first and third lines rhyme with the 3rd-5th syllable of the following lines respectively
The second and fourth lines need to rhyme.

Here is my attempt at two stanzas, warts and all.
Trying a new poetry form
The words swarm into their line
Can I make this poem work?
Crafting takes guesswork and time
Hope I leave you with a smile
The trial was not too bad
This Welsh poem type is strange
Where the rhymes exchange a tad
The magician pulled up her sleeves and pulled out her bestest smile
Reaching out she produced the deck of cards out of thin air
It amazed the onlookers, but that was just the appetizer
Crafting more magic she took her audience on a journey, but suddenly they disappeared
Keeping her eyes closed, she wished the dream never had to end
When sitting down in front of her computer
Olivia began her daily penance
Dancing on the keyboard
Crafting new realms from the ether
Outpouring her imagination onto the page
Until she felt she could write no more that day
Nanowrimo would push her to become the writer she wanted to be
That or break her will to write till New Years.
