|The ae freslighe, pronounced "ay fresh lee," is an Irish verse form. Each stanza is a quatrain of seven syllables per line. Lines one and three rhyme with a three-syllable rhyme, and lines two and four use a two-syllable rhyme: abab. Irish poetry is cyclic, so the last line should end with the first syllable word or the complete line with which it began.
