Disyllabics (as you may have guessed) refers to a poem in which each line has only two syllables. Typically they are five stanzas of three lines apiece, and the second and fourth stanzas begin with spondees while the rest are trochees. Because it is so short, I am only using the stressed/unstressed rhythms in this one as a general guideline, not a hard rule.
