A Random Villanelle

Updated on April 16, 2017

So you hope that these are beautiful lines

to do justice to my daughters giraffe

an abstract form for these romantic rhymes.


When these black ink doodles define our times

many chores and many cups of coffee

so you hope that these lines are beautiful lines.


And you hope that someone stops to read the signs

some effort to resist catastrophe

an abstract form for these romantic rhymes.


Over ten years of life that this enshrines

and there was smiles and dance in more then half

so you hope that these are beautiful lines.


Onto another page as hope defines

a simple search for the ones who can laugh

an abstract form for these romantic rhymes.


To practice everyday as life refines

and write and write volumes of paragraphs

so you hope that these are beautiful lines

an abstract form for these romantic rhymes.

      Love the way this flows and takes up previous lines - so well crafted!

      Hi Jamie. Thankyou for introducing me to villanelle poetry. You reminded me that there is something soothing about repeated lines. Hope the family has had some Easter fun.
