Do Return My Dear (Villanelle)

Presented below is a 'Villanelle' or 'Villanesque' which 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. Read more here

I am very thankful to K Parthasarthi Sir for his motivation and guidance. 


Do Return My Dear

Like rosy spring, do return my dear
You make heavens smile upon me
I shall await you till the next year

Your whisperings all day I hear
In twinkling stars, your face I see
Like rosy spring, do return my dear

I sense storm hidden in skies clear
Igniting are the cold waves of sea
I shall await you till the next year

But this cruel fate is what I fear
Still I have set you, my love, free
Like rosy spring, do return my dear

The pangs of love often appear
So blissful is this insanity, I agree
I shall await you till the next year

No other desires are left, I swear
As our lives are tied by His decree
Like rosy spring, do return my dear
I shall await you till the next year
