2006.15.2 A villanelle

Were that it were otherwise

Villanelle

I often wish that I had otherwise done
That I had found some other way.
I would have been a fortunate one.

I might have lived a life of joy and fun
And lived to learn and love and play.
I often wish that I had otherwise done

I might have sung and gaily run
And lived my days in dances fey.
I would have been a fortunate one.

Like a beauty with buttons undone
My life might have danced to a seductive lay.
I often wish that I had otherwise done

If the moments in my life that I shun
Whirled and twisted and flew far away
I would have been a fortunate one.

Hidden in the dark like a timid mole
I want my sins would more lightly weigh
I often wish that I had otherwise done
I would have been a fortunate one.
