The first word of line 2 is the last word of line 1
and the last word of line 2 is the 1st word of line 1.

The first word of line 3 rhymes with the last word of line 3.
The first word of line 4 is the last word of line 3
and the last word of line 4 is the 1st word of line 3.

The first word of line 5 rhymes with the last word of line 5.
The first word of line 6 is the last word of line 5

The Mirror Sestet can also be written in non-rhyme.
All rules must be followed except there is no 1st and last word rhyming.

enigma

Two big stones in the middle of the field

Field of grass and daffodils and those two

Out of nowhere they seem to be left there

There as the sun shines and sets to be out

Spiritual source of inspiration

Inspiration to write something spiritual

 

Such enigma in this vast ancient landscape

Landscape that could be prehistoric such

People revered them as two holy ones

Ones who could be observers of people

Beauty and serenity we could sense

Sense of harmony we see these beauty
