Malherbe’s Canons of French Poetry

.

(1) Poetry is to contain only such words as are in common use by well-educated Parisians.

(2) A word ending with a vowel must in no case be followed by a word beginning with a vowel.

(3) One line in no wise is to run into another.

(4) The cæsura must always be most strictly observed.

(5) Every alternate rhyme must be feminine.
