Facing the Music of the Past

It’s been a while since I took up a poetry challenge and Bastet made a really good one.  The style is called a Terzanelle and I’m going to give it my best shot.  Yes, I’m using a subplot of Legends of Windemere: Allure of the Gypsies for a basis.

The past is waiting for his return
Many hold a grudge
The past is waiting for his return

At the gate he will not budge
He senses anger in the air
Many hold a grudge

A familiar face devoid of care
She remembers what he did
He senses anger in the air

The love she held may now be rid
His presence boils her blood
She remembers what he did

Tears flowing like a salty flood
Neither knowing their next moves
His presence boils her blood

Time shall be a friend who proves
The past is waiting for his return
Neither knowing their next moves
The past is waiting for his return

(Yeah.  I think I botched this.  Need to distract . . . look at the munchkin!

Told him to close his eyes

Told him to close his eyes

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    It doesn’t sound botched to me, but I honestly don’t know the rhyming scheme, just like a good poem. And a happy funny face.

  6. Well done and great poem, I like the Yallowitz twist put on the form. Maybe you should patent it. 🙂
