for what sense it is when he’s gone

p1020456-1024x768-640x300

for what sense it is when he’s gone
not even a trace seen from path
I keep hearing his voice at dawn
aloud in a whisper – be gone!
and I used to have what he hath
for what sense it is when he’s gone

    1. (I can’t find it on poetic form sites amongst recorded variations of sestets. Is it your own invention? Does it have a name? I’d quite like to play with this too.

      1. Yes,that’s a good site. But I can see what the form is; I just wondered if it was already recognised and named. The site is no help in finding that out; I would have to know the name already to search it. Other sites which do list things under types of sestets don’t include this, so I thought it might be your own variation. And then I would credit you when using it.
