Searching -- Pantoum
Searching all around for one true love
Love so hard to find with many untrue
Praying to the skies and heaven above
Hoping for a miracle to come on cue
 
Love so hard to find with many untrue
A wounded heart from years of misery
Hoping for a miracle to come on cue
And bring forth a true love for me
 
A wounded heart from years of misery
Needing compassion to aid in healing
And bring forth a true love for me
To bring out the best in me by supporting
 
Needing compassion to aid in healing
Praying to the skies and heavens above
To bring out the best in me by supporting
Searching all around for one true love
Author's Notes:
Pantoum
The pantoum consists of a series of quatrains rhyming ABAB in which the second and fourth lines 
of a quatrain recur as the first and third lines in the succeeding quatrain; each quatrain introduces a 
new second rhyme as BCBC, CDCD. The first line of the series recurs as the last line of the closing 
quatrain, and third line of the poem recurs as the second line of the closing quatrain, rhyming ZAZA.

The design is simple:
 
Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
Line 4
 
Line 5 (repeat of line 2)
Line 6
Line 7 (repeat of line 4)
Line 8
 
Continue with as many stanzas as you wish, but the ending stanzathen repeats the second and 
fourth lines of the previous stanza (as its first and third lines), and also repeats the third line of 
the first stanza, as its second line, and the first line of the first stanza as its fourth. So the first 
line of the poem is also the last.
 
Last stanza:

Line 2 of previous stanza
Line 3 of first stanza
Line 4 of previous stanza
Line 1 of first stanza

another neat style here, Joe...and the message of lost love and broken hearts is one that can be related to so well....by so many.

Hugs and smiles...
