There Is A Narrow road Ahead: A Villanelle

in esteem •  last month 



"*There Is A NArrow Road Ahead *"

There is a narrow road ahead
just waiting for a traveler—
do you dare take the lead?

Get out of your warm bed
and enter the cold chiller—
there is a narrow road ahead.

One needs to earn his own bread
so don't be just a filler—
do you dare to take the lead?

In life one must use his head,
are you a buyer or a seller?
There is a narrow road ahead.

It's okay to have a little greed
so run away from the jailer.
Do you dare to take the lead?

The world is in need of new seeds
so why not become a tiller?
There is a narrow road ahead—
do you dare to take the lead?



What is a Villanelle?

A villanelle (also known as villanesque) is a nineteen-line poetic form consisting of five tercets followed by a quatrain. There are two refrains and two repeating rhymes, with the first and third line of the first tercet repeated alternately until the last stanza, which includes both repeated lines. The villanelle is an example of a fixed verse form. The word derives from Latin, then Italian, and is related to the initial subject of the form being the pastoral.
