A Villanelle

My first try at writing a villanelle

Some Beautiful Music From Frank Zappa

This is my first attempt at a villanelle and it isn't technically perfect, but I am happy with it.

In fact, it is not a villanelle at all, but I think it is a worthy poem and hope you do too.

I thought Villanelle sounded familiar. It is the name of the comic book assassin played by the wonderful Jodie Marie Comer in β€œKilling Eve”. You can read a little more about her here:

The lead music is the unexpectedly beautiful "Sofa #1" by Frank Zappa perfect to read this by.


From the land of dreams we now leave the night

Fingers touching , holding, we meet the day

Our next steps will take us into the light


Our day is starting ,a breakfast delight

Together we know we are on our way

The sun is risen , no cloud is in sight


Our day is here, we know this is so right

We know the right words, the ones we should say

Seeing the blue sky, our mood now takes flight


Each day we are closer, our hearts alight

Working together with you it’s like play

Tomorrow will be better , more delight


We are ever improving, words we write

Easy to Keep mundane boredom at bay

Our minds as one find new ways to excite


And we end the day, await the night

Our thoughts delight in whatever we may

Together forever living delight

A New Day coming is within our sight
