Out of memory,a lie, Then, goodbye; Out of my eye,a tear, Then a sigh; Out of the past,a smile, Then,a second chance; Out of romance,a ring, eternity,perchance. This sequenced couplet form which I label a 'tabb' after John Bannister Tabb(1841-99) poem 'Evolution'

Very nice form with a Kyrielle flavor, Brian. I like the hope provided in the last two verses. Love, Carolyn
