A line for me

I see yellow flowers abloom,
Full of sunshine, snatch away gloom,
Many across hedges growing bloom,
Snatch away gloom, snatch away gloom.

without a second glance you pass,
No alluring name, grow in grass,
In poetry, don’t let me pass,
This’s my canvass, this’s my canvass.

Daffodils, jasmines, roses,
Across poets, aplenty verses,
line for me , yellow proposes,
Among roses, among roses.

Poetry form :- Monotetra, developed by Michael Walker.

Rules :-

Stanza Structure:

Line 1: 8 syllables; A1
Line 2: 8 syllables; A2
Line 3: 8 syllables; A3
Line 4: 4 syllables, repeated; A4, A4

Comprised of quatrains (four-line stanzas) in tetrameter (four metrical feet) for a total of 8 syllables per line
*Each quatrain consists of mono-rhymed lines (so each line in the first stanza has the same type of rhyme, as does each line in the second stanza, etc.)
*The final line of each stanza repeats the same four syllables. This is what makes the monotetra so powerful as a poetic form – the last line contains two metrical feet, repeated.
*This poem can be as short as 1 or 2 quatrains and as long as a poet wishes.
