A form called 'Terza Rima'. -4th November 2015.




Your kiss.

Please kiss away the pain
And keep me standing strong.
Loneliness, we meet again

 

Throughout these hours long.
I can't keep from singing
All these unfinished songs.

Terza rima is Italian for "third rhyme." It was first used, i think, in Dante's "Inferno." Well done.

Loved it, never heard of the form, always learning something new on The Bay, thanks. I couldn't make up my mind if this was a happy or sad piece, for me it could have gone either way, hope it's happy!
