Englyn*
 

 

 

Brian Strand, UK

 

Half-Hearted

 

Her love was like a rose, with no perfume.
Dressed in very fine clothes
passion she could not propose,
brought the romance to a close.

 

 

*Englyna quatrain from Welsh poetry of 30 syllables in four lines 10, 6, 7, 7. The sixth syllable of line one announces the rhyme, the last syllable of the succeeding three lines rhyme with it. (The final syllable of line one is without rhyme). The content has an enigmatic quality.
