Farewell

by tfawcus

Our stars are dancing on the sea tonight
Yet shudder at the sadness of farewell,
Alive in this blue hour of shifting light.
I watch the way they ride the rising swell

Yet shudder at the sadness of farewell.
Such sea-glass stars have twins set in the sky.
I watch the way they ride the rising swell
As we must surely do; my love and I.

Such sea-glass stars have twins set in the sky
That span the empty loneliness of space
As we must surely do, my love and I,
Until we can, at length, again embrace.

Our stars are dancing on the sea tonight
Alive in this blue hour of shifting light.


Write a Pantoum Sonnet contest entry

Recognized

Earned A Seal Of Quality


A Pantoum Sonnet is a unique and beautiful form, combining the Pantoum and the Sonnet.
Like a sonnet, it consists of three rhymed quatrains and a rhymed couplet and it is written in iambic pentameter but, like a Pantoum,, the second and a fourth line of each quatrain repeats as the first and third line of the next. The final couplet completes the circularity by repeating the first and third lines of the opening stanza.
