Earthbound Angel (A Monotetra Elegy) - Poem by Dawn Slanker

'The monotetra consists of any number of stanzas of four lines each. Each stanza contains a monorhyme, so that the pattern of the stanzas would be “aaaa bbbb cccc” and so on… this is where the “mono” in the name of the form comes in. The “tetra” in the name of the form is because each line of each stanza is written in tetrameter... The other aspect of the monotetra is that the fourth line of each stanza is a repeating four-syllable phrase...' http: //forums.mosaicmusings.net/index.php? showtopic=253

Earthbound Angel
(an elegy for a lovely poet and friend)

An earthbound Angel's taken flight
her home's among the stars so bright
To hear her Siren song by night.
Look to the light, look to the light.

No longer will our Siren sing.
An earthbound Angel's taken wing
and in her flight did sadness bring
a painful sting, a painful sting.

In memory; her voice so frail
sings to the wind, a lovely tale.
An earthbound Angel's taken sail
on heaven's gale, on heaven's gale.

She sings of friends with heavy heart
with knowledge that we all must part.
Through soulful words; poetic art...
she did depart, she did depart.

    Exquisite. I believe in the beauty and discipline of form. The third stanza
    is especially moving.

    Warmest regards,
