Rispetto
The rispetto lyric is generally composed of (two quatrains), eight hendecasyllabic (11-syllable) lines. Early on the rhyme scheme was usually abababcc , but ababccdd is now more prominent.

 

Sol's the personification of the sun, a sun-god once worshiped by ancient Romans. In the Circus Maximus, races were run, as Sol's temple priests interrupted omens. Sol’s chariot ignites the east edge of night, with a ball of fire and beams of brilliant light. The giver of life, Sol’s a resplendent god, and yet, though sculpted in marble, he is flawed.

Congratulations on your winning placement, Emile. I had forgotten that the sun is seen as the god, Sol. I especially love the imagery in the second stanza - "ignites the east edge of night." All the best.
