A pendulum plays a well known rhythm

Movements between a left and a right swing
A pendulum plays a well-known rhythm
Moments between the ticking and tocking

A lonely figure bracing in the storm
An empty park-bench on a quiet lawn
A pendulum plays a well-known rhythm

Like a long lost memory towards dawn
The distant baying of a hunting dog
An empty park-bench on a quiet lawn

Hearing bright laughter thru the gloomy fog
Sometimes life is spent in little spaces
The distant baying of a hunting dog

Out at large, on and on the world races
Life, long or short, fines a nominal sum
Sometimes life is spent in little spaces

Knocking at a door for heaven to come
Movements between a left and a right swing
Life, long or short, fines a nominal sum
Moments between the ticking and tocking.

    I really enjoyed your terzanelle. I just learned this form in the last number of months. It's nice to see someone write one his well.

    wow, this is really different from what I see in a terzanelle. I love how you used the swinging of the pendulum for the spaces between. Very clever and interesting idea you presented here!
