Moonrise Here (Cavatina)

The Cavatina is:
stanzaic, written in any number of quatrains made up of uneven couplets
and finally ending in a declamatory couplet.
metered, alternating iambic pentameter and iambic dimeter lines. The end declamatory couple is iambic pentameter.
rhymed. Rhyme scheme x a x a, x b x b, x c x c, etc. d d. x being unrhymed. The end couplet is rhymed.



Softly sweetly lowly seen an arc's sheen
'Moon is rising'
But busy folks way back home, so not keen
'Moon is rising'
From the dimmed deeps to limned blocks that still seen
'Moon is rising'
Catch the sight flashing in thrilled folks but soon
Through the space bare in their homes sheeny moon

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
