Look Into Self

(Sonnetina Rispetto) 


You must return to the very start 
Just look into your mind and heart 
And so you can be born again 
Heed my words for I do not lie 

To be born again old must die 
Free from all the pain and the sin 
You must return to the very start 
Just look into your mind and heart 

For,if I may be really bold 
The new is born out of the old 
And so you can be born again 
Free from all the pain and the sin 

You must return to the very start 
Just look into your mind and heart

    I think this is quite a new form. I have written one rispetto with the Italian style with two quatrains. Will you please give more details about this form.
