This metre plays a similar role to pentameter in English verse. This has had many far-reaching consequences for Arabic poetic discourse. A rhymed poem should have everything — sense writing a rhymed verse meaning order, imagery, strong words, powerful sounds — that any poem has: Full fathom five thy father lies; "a" rhyme Of his bones are coral made; "b" rhyme Those are pearls that were his eyes; "a" rhyme Nothing of him that doth fade "b" rhyme But doth suffer a sea change "c" rhyme Into something rich and strange.
In India, ghazals of the late Persian form were written in Persian as well as a number of Indian languages.
The beginnings of the ghazal in Persian was a time of imitating and adapting the Arabic form. Hippolyta, I wooed thee with my sword, end of line is not end of sentence And won thy love, doing thee injuries.

The pattern utilized here is iambic pentameter. Not your strongest lines, of course; build the poem around them. Since the above description of the ghazals written in Persian at this time can apply to quite a number of Arabic ghazals and none of the differences constitute an actual formal deviation from the Arabic norm, we can say that these early Persian examples still fit into the broad formal pattern of the Arabian ghazal.
And once I saw how that worked, I felt instinctively, this is exactly what I need, there is no traditional Western order that I have found that will contain all these materials.
