Villanelle: Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum

Villanelle : Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum

Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum
   Always to heart stings awakened to soothe
That in lost coves and caves melodious strum

When in dark lonesome nights owl hoots knock glum
   None to hear silent sobs shut in tight booth
Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum

Some bounceable dame caught in a doldrum
   Each secret finger on the Djinn’s sharp tooth
That in lost coves and caves melodious strum

Some invoke the lordly prince staid and glum
   And make him slave to every wish in truth
Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum
 
If this right to steal some solace and plum
   Were this not a gift from high above a truth
That in lost coves and caves melodious strum

How right we then all the fanfare and drum
   For those few well-bred and armed to the tooth
Lodged in our cockles Aladdin lamps hum
   That in lost coves and caves melodious strum

    Hi Catie! So you're still alive and kicking! Don't mean to be rude. I know you've got a way about poems which is flattering for the poet - if I might call myself one, considering there are literally billions of glittering stars who have tried their hand at it. What contest? You surprise me. Every good wish. Very many thanks. Wignesan
