The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words. Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

So, my husband was unexpectedly sent out of state for work for the week, which means that I rescheduled my surgical procedure because no way I'm doing that with him out of town; so that's excellent news for the challenges, because I can keep hosting them for a while longer! And on that note, I present you with the Earth, Water, Air, and Fire four part series challenge.
CHALLENGE RULES: This will be a four part series challenge that'll take place over the course of 4 days with one element being focused on at a time. This first one will be based on the Earth element. Participants are asked to write a piece of no more than 40 lines (less is fine) from the point of view of the Earth. In other words, how would you look, sound, feel, and act if you were the Earth? What would that experience be like? Do your best to give the reader a clear understanding of what it would be like if you were the Earth. Posts must be penned in English please.

The Byr a thoddaid is a Welsh form. Here are the rules:
The byr a thoddaid is a quatrain (4-line stanza) or series of quatrains (of 8-8-10-6 syllable lines) The quatrain itself is divided into two combined couplets (2-line stanza)
One couplet contains 8 syllables for each line with an aa end rhyme The other couplet contains 10 syllables in the first line and 6 syllables in the second The 10-syllable line of this other couplet has an end rhyme near the end of the line (but not at the end) The 6-syllable line of this other couplet has a link (either rhyme, alliteration, etc.) to the end word of the 10-syllable line and then an end rhyme
X’s represent non-rhyming syllables; capital letters represent rhyming syllables; lower-case letters (that aren’t x’s) represent the linked words/sounds/etc.
