Experimental Poetry Form: Seven lines, random syllable counts, and a rhyming pattern

This experimental poetry form consists of seven lines.  The lines have the following syllable counts: 11, 9, 10, 7, 12, 6 and 9.  The syllable counts were determined, by shuffling a deck of cards, dealing out seven and giving syllable counts corresponding to the values.  The rhyming pattern is AABABBA.  This pattern matches the odd/even qualities of the syllables counts of the lines.  Odd lines, are A rhymes, even lines, are B rhymes.  The form has no meter.  Here is an example poem written in the form:

Upon the soft grass and looking up so high,
and seeing a hawk as it does fly,
gliding above without flapping a wing,
makes one think and wonder why,
as the hawk flies above in a circular ring,
why there it does not sing,
because it seems with joy it would try.

Here is an example of a poem using this experimental poetry form:

Rabbits

With large brown eyes they seemed to gawk,
up at the flying hawk,
quickly hopping,
hastily about,
silently with doubt,
swiftly popping,
never stopping,
the rabbits bounced away with shock.
