This reminds me of the poem Raven, but you have put such a light and sensual context into this it makes it almost the complete opposite, brilliantly penned Arthur, I appreciate the depth and sentiment in your words!
The brilliance of the form aside this was breathtaking. It is hard enough tow write villanelle ... I applaud your talent here ARTHUR ... fantastic sentiment and honesty together with fine style as always K x
The rigid villanelle structure often makes those pesky repeated lines seem redundant - but you've overcome that, Arthur. Each stanza here builds on the story and is intrinsic within your emotional poem. Bravo!! H x
