Love’s Ovillejo


                  Tilt-A-Whirl's advice for writing one of its repeating forms, the ovillejo:
                to know
              how repetends will combine for the closing line. Thereby to commit
                        where it
          will hinge into its thirds.  Which decides how each third's repetend
                                will end
    each segment of the what its opening sestet seeks to portend.

    Our love written as an ovillejo might've been better read
    if we'd stepped its story three echoes back to reach ahead
                                            to know where it will end.
