He who perseveres wins? ~The Poet’s Poet~

He had his own style and felt at home in his own eccentric world

Once he sat to write each day he felt quite content

Even though he never knew just what might unfold

 

Whatever was going on inside his head the story must be told

Of course it had to be constructive in it very content

He had his own style and felt at home in his own eccentric world

 

He had at all times to feel free to write never be corralled

Never would he seek assurance or ever ask consent

Even though he never knew just what might unfold

 

A consolation you might say for he could be brash and bold

Be vitriolic if need be, he would find it difficult to relent

He had his own style and felt at home in his own eccentric world

 

His vision for his Villanelle – words had to be controlled

Treat them as you would an infant child which was from heaven sent

Even though he never knew just what might unfold

 

So this Villanelle now near its end soon to be unfurled

He is proud of his contribution to the writerly world that he did not relent

He had his own style and felt at home in his own eccentric world

Even though he never knew just what might unfold.

    1. It kind of worked I think Fransi, I was reading yesterday evening and got the (for want of a better word) inspiration from a page line jotted part of it down in the third person and as they say the rest is history – just like the BREXIT deal is looking like becoming.
