Lie To Me : Rondine

Lie to me about beautiful things,
of green sea, of winter land,
of a fairy’s magical wand,
of olive trees in jungle within,
of unforgettable memorable spring,
holding hands in hands,
lie to me.


Flying on ethereal wings,
journeying across the sands,
crossing the time’s strands,
where an angel sings,
lie to me.
For IGWRT. Quote, I chose for the prompt is, ' “Hello. I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by true, I mean false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer is: No."- Leonardo Nemoy

Rondine : Has two stanzas, a septet (7 lines), and a quintet (5 lines), making the poem a total of 12 lines. There is a refrain in which the last line of each stanza mimics the first phrase of the first line. R.Rhyme Scheme : (R a). b. b. a. a. b. R....a. b. b. a. R.


  1. I must say I also thrive on such lies. Truth is overrated

  2. This is so beautiful! The words 'crossing the time's strands' especially spoke to me (in Leonard Nimoy's voice).

  3. These are wonderful lies...! Smiles.

  4. i know what you mean, i was listening to some old song on the radio, only last night and saying to my self wow these are such gullable lies and yet they are lovable lies we still listen to and hum the tunes
