ode to a form

yes, it

requires

some skill

to write a

real quadrille;

musical, like

a trill, a thrill

to take up

your best quill

let creative

juices spill;

count each

word,

you will

keep writing

until the

quota of

cuarenta y cuatro

you fill…

then chill.

 


Chilling at the poets’ pub today, writing quadrilles on the word¬†“spill”.
