Other options I did not mention in the above post are:

A tercet and three monostiches - which you could split 3-1-1-1, 1-3-1-1, 1-1-3-1, 1-1-1-3

A couplet and four monostitches - which you could split - 2-1-1-1-1, 1-2-1-1-1, 1-1-2-1-1, 1-1-1-2-1, 1-1-1-1-2

Two couplets and two monostitches - which you could split 2-2-1-1, 2-1-2-1, 1-2-2-1, 1-2-1-2, 2-1-1-2



Just a reminder - a monostitch is a one-line stanza, a couplet is a two-line stanza, a tercet is a three-line stanza and a quatrain is a four-line stanza

So to bring all these options together:

You could have any of the following:

A tercet and three monostiches - which you could split 3-1-1-1, 1-3-1-1, 1-1-3-1, 1-1-1-3

A couplet and four monostitches - which you could split - 2-1-1-1-1, 1-2-1-1-1, 1-1-2-1-1, 1-1-1-2-1, 1-1-1-1-2

Two couplets and two monostitches - which you could split 2-2-1-1, 2-1-2-1, 1-2-2-1, 1-2-1-2, 2-1-1-2


Six monostiches - 1-1-1-1-1-1

Three couplets - 2-2-2

Two monostiches and a quatrain 1-4-1, 1-1-4, 4-1-1

A monostich, a couplet and a tercet - 1-2-3, 1-3-2, 2-1-3, 2-3-1, 3-1-2, 3-2-1

So plenty of splitting choices there Winking 2
