Sitting in Michael's Lap
Thank you for posting this one, Dream ... it paints a vivid picture ...
I am a bit confused, however, by the format ... I have not found any information on the paradelle form; I see the repetition of lines, but the order of the repeated first and last words confuse me a bit ... think you could elaborate with a "map" of the form..?
BTW: In re your post to my challenge, how about a haiku or three..?
"Nunc lento sonitu dicunt, morierus"
(Now as I hear this bell tolling softly for another, it says to me, "Thou must die.")
