I know the ocean's gentle, rolling waves -
the treasures in its dark and murky depths;
and deep within its grottoes and its caves -
tis there the fey will lure me to my death

I met a girl so fair of face and skin,
her wanton kisses wrapping me within -
that all my senses lurched and crept away,
to lock me in this wet and slippery grave.
December Form Challenge, 2012 :iconkiwi-damnation::iconprojectdfc:

This first poem is a Rispetto - an Italian form of poetry, is a complete poem of two rhyme quatrains with strict meter.
The meter is usually iambic tetrameter with a rhyme scheme
of abab ccdd.

A Heroic Rispetto is written in iambic pentameter, usually
featuring the same rhyme scheme.

Reminds me of a story about "Juratė ir Kastytis".
