Experimental Poetry Form: Anapestic tetrameter

Today’s experimental poetry form uses anapestic tetrameter.  There are six lines.  Each line is written in anapestic tetrameter.  The three middle lines rhyme.  Here is an example poem:

A long lost far off path that goes on far from here,
it does wind and does turn and goes past what is known,
through the trees and the hills to the rocks all of stone,
where the light shines on down on a way that is shown,
that goes through a great wall that does block the way on,
that stopped all who did try to move past what was there.
