If I Should Ever Write a Villanelle

If I should ever write a villanelle,
Then may I plant a seed of thought to grow
From the root of my contemplative well.

May the flood of thought swell
For each blooming seed I drop below
If I should ever write a villanelle.

May each drop cast a spell
Of flourishing rhythmic sound and flow
From the root of my contemplative well.

May this magical stream compel
The singing of its song wherever it will go
If I should ever write a villanelle.

May its vital music ring a bell
To those who experience a refreshing undertow
From the root of my contemplative well.

May your experiences wash away your living hell
With the intent to drown whatever hell you know
If I should ever write a villanelle
From the root of my contemplative well.
