The strengths I gain in life increase
A lesson learned at every turn
In such I find a sense of peace

Once married to a man caprice
Another’s kiss he soon did yearn
The strengths I gain in life increase

My children two are sweet surcease
Each day they chase away concern
In such I find a sense of peace

Disease might mark my life’s decease
The morrow is the day I learn
The strengths I gain in life increase

And when collectors’ calls decrease
My life will take an upward turn
In such I find a sense of peace

Though pain and strife will never cease
And often cause my heart to burn
The strengths I gain in life increase
In such I find a sense of peace

Your villanelle likes me much my friend, 'tis a wondrous feat indeed, in form as well as content.

------------------
Nothing is worse than sorrow,
except perhaps disdain.
I'll be myself tomorrow,
tonight I'll feel the pain.

I loved this poem. It is very elegantly stated

You did take this in a direction that I hadn't anticipated - and brought your theme together nicely - A fine job, my friend...

Very wise words spoken here, Satiate. I myself was just glad we found strength to finish the villanelles. Your words are strong and your villanelle was completed nicely. Good job.

BRAVO! Perhaps someday I will find the patience and discipline to attempt one of these. My hats off to all of you who succeeded!

Glad to see that Emily could escape John's lumberjack gruffness enough to put this one together.
