The Florette, created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more 4-line stanzas.
Rhyme scheme: a,a,b,a
Fourth line requirement of internal (b) rhyme scheme, on syllable 8.
Like the outgrowing of a small flower, the forth line of each stanza is longer, and enwraps the previous lines. Line #4 requires an internal rhyme scheme that rhymes the eighth syllable with the end of line #3, and continues to add on four more syllables than the other lines so that the fourth line ends rhyming with lines #1 and #2.
what is this fear, that of unknown?
ignorance and not being shown
venturing out is not that bad
new experience for us to add, so let’s not moan
some delicate juggling process
we don’t know and we have to guess
trial and error is required
anything to make us inspired, don’t need stress
