Country Life

Pair of senior pensioners, rural walk
Fun loving talk
Power of extended life conversion
It’s reversion
Remembering dreams of life on the farm
Talking much charm
Happy healthy life, animals involved
Farming resolved
Retirement was never planned, just happened
Feeling saddened.

Sonnetina Due is:

  • A decastich (10-line poem) written in five couplets, usually with no spaces in between.
  • There is no set line length or rhythm, although they are usually written in iambic tetrameter or pentameter.
  • They may be unrhymed, but if rhymed, the rhyme scheme is aabbccddee.

Split couplet — rhymed 2-line form with the first line in iambic pentameter (10 syllables) and the second line in iambic diameter (4 syllables).

Closed couplet — a poetic unit of 2 lines that expresses a complete thought and can stand alone as a poem in its own right. Meter and rhyme are at the poet’s discretion.
