take stanza to mean what you want it to mean
as long as there are no line breaks

such as this throughout the poem
then you are ok

I have never tried a monosyllabic exercise before,

This jaundiced effort, took about two minutes to write, unfortunately it is not in lyric format, and is more than one stanza in length.  

The two-minute Monosyllabic Sonnet.

O’ bright clean dawn thy morn be fresh
What wills I would wise thought it mesh.
The bird’s all sing in tones so true
Which wakes those thoughts, I have of you.

They swoop and play, to glide mid- air
What joy they give to those that care
It seems to me, life gives a sound
To all fresh hope life’s love, it found.

When man has of true means to plead
His words will grace the flames it gleed
And rise as fires set in the sky
To paint life’s hob with words he ply.

Great be wise words that man may pen
If he of loves own grace, a give, it then.

This monosyllabic thing is catching.

Not really what you want I know, but I could not help just dashing of these couple of nonsensical’ exercises as they flashed through my mind.

Adapted to the Gaelic Tune.   Marie’s Wedding. (The Lewis Bridal Song)

Heel to heel, and toe to toe, all those girls they love me so.
I will dance this dance with you, take the floor and I will too
Step it light, and step it fair, show the world your own true flare.
Give a twist, and give a twirl, show them all you are my girl.
Step we out, and show our pace, link our arms and save our grace
Down the line, and round we go, heel for heel and toe for toe
Dance we fine, and dance we dare, dance as though we float on air
We will drink the wine it pled, at the dance where we were wed.

A bing bang, a bing bang, a bang bang bang bang.
A bing bang bang, a bing bang bang, a bang bang bang bang bang.
A dee dee, a dee dee, a dee dee dee dee, dee dee dee a dee dee, a dee dee dee dee dee.
She teases me, she teases me, she teases me o’ so, that I would o’ a bing bang bang, a bing bang bing bang bo.
I want her, I want her, I want her o’ I do.
If I could just a bing bang o’, and her a bing bang too.

Morchuis.
