Today, a poem, though I am well aware that by posting a poem on my blog I am almost certain to lose at a stroke the recent large and gratifying increase in the number of 'Page Views' as they are called.
This poem is a Sestina. As with most poetic forms, reading the dictionary definition of 'Sestina' is utterly bewildering, and even if one understands the definition one is likely to think 'Why on earth would anyone bother'? Nevertheless, here is a sestina. I might say (in fact I will say; surely one can blow one's own trumpet on one's own blog?) that this particular sestina won me a £500 prize. If the print has come out too small to read, I think you can make it bigger by clicking on it or something.
