A Quatern is a sixteen line French form composed of four quatrains. It has a refrain that is in a different place in each quatrain. A quatern has eight syllables per line. It does not have to be iambic or follow a set rhyme scheme.

She sinks into oblivion
Each instance his name is spoken
It hearkens back to time of sun
When her heart had first awoken
*
Then put to sleep at his cruel hand
She sinks into oblivion
Too soon ’twas winter on the land
Where now she dwells in Stygia
*
Heart of midnight obsidian
No more on earthly realm does dwell
She sinks into oblivion
Assignation with reaper’s knell
*
In her blue velvet he loved well
Sips tea, ricin valerian
A tender smile plays round her lips
She sinks into oblivion
