The Peeking Crow (Dizain)

This was originally a French form and initially would have been made up of eight syllable lines, but later ten syllable lines were also used.
A few examples of this form in England did prefer Iambic Pentameter, but that's purely up to the poet.
The rhyme scheme is: a. b. a. b. b. c. c. d. c. d.

The Peeking Crow

A crow used to come for the window grains
For some reason unknown it stopped comming
One day I saw a cat eating the grains
I could guess that it was the cat playing
Cat-eaten grains- perhaps crow avoiding
So the same crow when I saw on a tree
I rushed and kept the grain-bowl down the tree
But the peeking crow flew to the old place
Finding no grain-bowl there flew back to tree
Threw a wry look at me- zoomed into space
