Notes: This is the first villanelle I have ever been arsed to write. Figured I should get off my ass and write something that wasn’t a sonnet, for a change.


You shall not rain on my parade
Now the dances do begin,
And we shall gambol on the glade

Oh, do cease looking so dismayed
Raise your eyes and lift your chin
You shall not rain on my parade

Never have we been outplayed
Tap your foot and raise your shin,
And we shall gambol on the glade

With step and grin we shall persuade
And turn about your talk of sin
You shall not rain on my parade

Cease, at once, this dull charade
Lose your shoes and laugh and spin
And we shall gambol on the glade

Our whimsy shall your heart pervade
And work its gaiety therein
You shall not rain on my parade
And we shall gambol on the glade
