I thank the God or the big bang
The computer which runs the math
Or the Overlord of the distant gang
The cosmic entity in a nebulous bath
My eyes flutter and the heart rang
The only water which drowns my wrath
Shrouded in ether, her secret of existence
My heart never shows to her any kind of resistance
I wrote this in response to dVerse’s Form of all – Ottava Rima post.
Ottava Rima – Originally an Italian stanza of eight 11-syllable lines, with a rhyme scheme of ABABABCC. Sir Thomas Wyatt introduced the form in English, and Lord Byron adapted it to a 10-syllable line for his mock-epic Don Juan. W.B. Yeats used it for “Among School Children” and “Sailing to Byzantium.”
