Ballad of Hawnsby Hill

He came and talked so sweet on Hawnsby Hill,
She thought he was an answer to her prayer.
Yet Mary Ann now lies asleep so still.

A secret kept and he would have his fill,
Soon she was there without an ounce of care.
He came and talked so sweet on Hawnsby Hill.

They always met beside the ruined Mill,
He told her that she had no cause to fear.
Yet Mary Ann now lies asleep so still.

One day her mother thought she looked quite ill,
But still she left and met him with a tear.
He came and talked so sweet on Hawnsby Hill.

He told her for her love that he would kill,
But not the words she wanted most to hear.
Yet Mary Ann now lies asleep so still.

A baby was for him a bitter pill,
Alone, the pain would be too much to bear.
He came and talked so sweet on Hawnsby Hill.
Yet Mary Ann now lies asleep so still.

I also faved this poem, as well. The villanelle form is challenging and you did it so well! Thank you, Suzanne, for dropping by to comment on a few of my poems! :)

I love how you used the villanelle form for desired emphasis in this outstanding poem, Suzanne! Great write! You should consider entering a poetry contest or two as your work will get more exposure to a wider audience. You are very talented! :)
