The Thing Impossible Villanelle (Villanelle Poetic Form)



I have in mind to write a thing most well
To tell a story well makes the heart sing
And tell the story thus in Villanelle

It is not ugly thing on which I dwell
But carries with it very pretty ring
I have in mind to write a thing most well

It will have great and pretty plot to gel
And will when I am done make me as king
And tell the story thus in Villanelle

And perhaps if I do this it will sell
And maybe many green things it will bring
I have in mind to write a thing most well

But on this thing I shall not often dwell
Even though the thought is to me much bling
And tell the story thus in Villanelle

Hark! Say I to you send me thus to hell
There is not a way to do this great thing
I have in mind to write a thing so well
And tell the story thus in Villanelle
