Flanked by the seasons
twixt chill through warmth
Then back ‘round
That you’d fall for me
Or that I’d fall
This in no surprise
We’re touched as gods
All that’s left
dVerse ~ Poets Pub | ‘Tis the Season Quadrille #149
Tonight at the pub, Lisa tends bar and sets the season on a quadrille.
A quadrille, is simply a poem of 44 words, excluding the title. It can be in any form, rhymed or unrhymed, metered, or unmetered. You MUST use the word “season” or some form of the word in your poem.
I also cheat a little in that my quadrille is also what I’ll call an Reverse Extended Arun. A nonce poem created by blogger GirlGriot. An Arun is a fifteen-line poem in three sets of five lines. Each set of five lines follows the same syllable structure: starting with one syllable and increasing by one syllable with each line. 1/2/3/4/5 — 3x. There are no other rhyme or structural requirements. I inverted the syllable count and add two words to fit the quadrille requirement into a proposal of mythical proportions.
Spring is the season for so many different kinds of blossoms. Thank you for the reminder.
You’re welcome. And thank you.
Raivenne, I enjoy the look and feel of your “ninja” poem (defined by me as a poem that fulfills 2 form guidelines.) When love between two reaches a god-like mightiness, is there any other question that will do? I can see you had fun with this one 🙂
Ha! “ninja poem” I like that. Yes, I did have fun. Thanks, Lisa.
🙂 You’re welcome.
What an interesting form to write about this proposal. Enjoyed this retelling of the myth.

Excellent quadrille Raivenne. I found you perspective on the word season to be most effective. A proposal, cool.
Thank you, Rob.
SO! I love learning about new forms … this one looks like fun. Loved your poem too …..
The form looks challenging; amazing that you made a quadrille out of it. Very clever & fun.
Love how you put the concept into the title… and how you managed to fill the requirement of two forms.
Thank you, Björn.
A reverse arun! You’re totally making my day over here, my friend! ❤
