stanza-8

Twilight Princess Poem

So I had the chance to write a poem for a class. The poem is called a Pantoum and is structured so that almost each line is repeated twice. Here is the structure:

Line 1
Line 2
Line 3
Line 4

Line 5 (repeat of line 2 in stanza 1)
Line 6 (new line)
Line 7   (repeat of line 4 in stanza 1)
Line 8 (new line)

Line 9   (line 2 of the previous stanza)
Line 10 (line 3 of the first stanza)
Line 11 (line 4 of the previous stanza)
Line 12 (line 1 of the first stanza) 

So of course I wrote one about Twilight Princess :) Here it is:

Twilight Princess

When the Twilight Princess lost her crown,
Shadow claimed the world of light
Her lament was answered by the gods,
A savior they found in a Divine Beast

Shadow claimed the world of light,
And the people became as spirits
A savior they found in a Divine Beast,
Warrior by day and monster by night

And the people became as spirits
The Beast battled the Usurper King
Warrior by day and monster by night
Piece by piece her crown returned

When the Twilight Princess lost her crown
The Beast battled the Usurper King
Piece by piece her crown returned
Her lament was answered by the gods

Hoping you don’t see me
As I’m watching you
Standing…
