's DFC. This is a Glosa. A Glosa starts with a quatrain from a famous poem (or poem by a famous writer). The traditional Glosa has four 10-line stanzas expanding on the quatrain. I had completed two of them...and then lost them. Fortunately, the Glosa has taken a more modern turn as to form.
The opening quatrain is by Dorothy Parker.
