A villanelle for the Sculpting poetry contest.
Mellifluous notes waft through air;
Splitting me from my evil dream.
The cuckoo sings, chirps in its lair.

Tunes resound of a sweetness rare,
With profound ecstasy I beam.
Mellifluous notes waft through air.

With wonder, at the bird I stare.
Morning beams flood the sky and gleam.
The cuckoo sings, chirps in its lair.

Heart filled with joy,beyond compare.
A mere daydream it does not seem.
Mellifluous notes waft through air.

Sorrow effaced, mirth I now bear.
Soothes my soul, the dulcet stream.
The cuckoo sings, chirps in its lair.

Gladly I recite my prayer.
My soul filled with a bliss, extreme.
Mellifluous notes waft through air.
The cuckoo sings, chirps in its lair.
