I am wondering what type of poem is "Battery Hen" by Pam Ayres. Is it a free verse or another type of poem? I really don't know and I have to hand up my work in less than 2 hours. By the way I'm writing a analyse a poem. Thanks in advance. Do you know what I found? Pam Ayres Battery Hen is a series of five octets (eight line stanzas) rhymed xAxAxBxB (x is an unrhymed ending). The base rhythm is Common Metre (alternating Iambic Tetrameter and Iambic Trhymeter), but Ayres takes many liberties with this – as one expects with Common Metre. You can sing the poem to the tune The Yellow Rose of Texas, that is a good test for Common Metre.
