Chapter: A Perenelle Villanelle

Well, I have to say that you have mastered the Villanelle form! :) I just loved all the imagery, and Perenelle's wisdom, although glory of the world is probably not one of the top things on my list to want. Fabulous job, Jenny. I'm sorry that I never critiqued or reviewed this before now, but I didn't feel worthy enough to do so. *chuckles* still don't, but I thought I would tell you that I enjoyed it.

Author's Response: Thank you! I know what you mean...when you read a piece of utter brilliance by Julia or Natalie or Minna or Carole, and you simultaneously feel awe and unworthiness...it's a lovely feeling, but it makes reviewing very difficult! I maintain that none of my poetry ought to make anyone feel unworthy (especially not you, what with your plethora of amazing free verse poems!), but I am really glad you enjoyed it. Writing as Perenelle came naturally somehow. Her wisdom is not, after all, very complicated: it is just the opposite. Simple, and beautiful. And that's all I was trying to capture...within the rhyme and pattern confines of a villanelle! It took a quite a while to write and draft... ;D Anyway, thanks again for your ever-so-delightful review!
