Re: Thank you!

Thank you! I'm thinking you should write articles on choosing poetic form as well. I've a few books on forms, and some I found very helpful, but what you've said here about the villanelle has helped more than all I've read before. The idea of really having two great lines (rather than simply repeating a first, or a second), and playing cat's cradle between ... somehow that focused it for me. And yes, the idea of a bigger, deeper topic.

Seriously, thank you. I really want to try the form again, and I think I'll have a better approach this time around. And I think I need to wait until two great lines come to life in my head.
