apocalypse

‘I would that the Boar without bristles had come from the West
And had rooted the sun and moon and stars out of the sky’
—W.B. Yeats

apocalypse

when the world ends
it won’t matter who was wrong, who was right
when the world ends
and nothing’s left to fight for, or defend
will bitterness darken our path to the light
when the world ends

A Rondelet* for Jane Dougherty’s ‘A Month With Yeats: Day Twenty-Eight’ Poetry Challenge inspired by Yeats’ poem, ‘He Mourns for the Change That Has Come Upon Him And His Beloved, And Longs For The End Of The World’.

*The Rondelet is a French form consisting of a single septet with two rhymes and one refrain: AbAabbA. The capital letters are the refrains, or repeats. The refrain is written in tetra-syllabic or dimeter and the other lines are twice as long – octasyllabic or tetrameter.
