Awesome Villanelle! - ASK THE TRAVELER (A Villanelle)


I just came across a form of poem I totally wasn't aware of: the villanelle.
I have yet to try to write one...although, I'll probably try soon! ^^
I wanted to see if any of you can pull off an awesome villanelle. ;]

For those of you that have no clue what I'm talking about:
"The villanelle is a less common and much more difficult form, but it yields very interesting results. It follows a complex scheme of ABA ABA ABA ABA ABA ABA A (and no space between last two lines) with the first line repeated as the third line of the second, fourth, and sixth stanzas. The third line is repeated at the end of the third, fifth, and sixth stanzas."

Got that? ;] Go!


Knowing you are better at following rules than I am!
