a englyn-HALF HEARTED

Her love was like a rose,with no perfume.
Dressed in very fine clothes
passion she could not propose,
brought the romance to a close.


Note on form:ENGLYN a quatrain from Welsh poetry of 30 syllables in four lines 10,6,7,7.The 
sixth syllable of line one annouces the rhyme,the last syllable of succeeding three lines 
rhyme with it.(The final syllable of  line one is without rhyme).The content often has an 
enigmatic quality.
