Winning Poem

This challenge is here to see just how many of you are bold and adventurous. You are tasked with creating a Terzanelle. A terzanelle is a poetic form combining aspects of the villanelle and the terza rima.[1][2] It is nineteen lines total, with five triplets and a concluding quatrain. The middle line of each triplet stanza is repeated as the third line of the following stanza, and the first and third lines of the initial stanza are the second and final lines of the concluding quatrain; thus, seven of the lines are repeated in the poem. The rhyme scheme and stanzaic structure are as follows (a capitalized letter indicates a line repeated verbatim): ABA' bCB cDC dED eFE fAFA' I have provided an example from my own pen and I hope it helps. Come on out and give it a try. I will try to be gentle during the judging portion.
