The song thất lục bát (雙七六八, literally "double seven, six eight") is a Vietnamese poetic khuông, which consists of a quatrain comprising a couplet of two seven-syllable lines followed by a Lục chén bát couplet (a six-syllable line and an eight-syllable line). Each line requires certain syllables to tướng exhibit a "flat" or "sharp" pitch. Lines and stanzas are linked in a complex rhyme scheme.


• = any syllable; = trắc (sharp) syllable; = bởi vì (flat) syllable; A = bởi vì (flat) syllable with "A" rhyme.

Although the Song Thất Lục Bát stanza is the most common way of incorporating the secondary song thất khuông into the primary lục bát khuông, two other methods have also been used: song thất couplets may be randomly interspersed within a long lục bát poem; and the two types may alternate in an odd number of couplets, in which case the series both begins and ends with a lục bát couplet.[1]
