A new challenge for me this week, in the shape of a Celtic short poetry form, the Englyn.There are a number of different versions, I have chosen the easiest, the Englyn unodl union, consisting of four lines of ten, six, seven and seven syllables. The seventh, eighth or ninth syllable of the first line introduces the rhyme and this is repeated on the last syllable of the other three lines.
I decided to write about one of my passions, wine. I love a fine red Burgundy, alas not something I get to drink much of! Here goes for the draft (and a hastily scrawled drawing!), still needs some tweaking to get the best rhythm……
Homage to the Cote d’Or
Luscious, silky smooth and fine, sensual,
flavour exquisite, sublime,
everything I want in wine.
Am posting this for Open Link night at dVerse today.
