Poem: Terzanelle  – “Her Painted Face” 


The Terzanelle is a poetry type which is a combination of the villanelle and the terza rima forms. It is a 19-line poem consisting of five interlocking triplets/tercets plus a concluding quatrain in which the first and third lines of the first triplet appear as refrains. The middle line of each triplet is repeated, reappearing as the last line of the succeeding triplet with the exception of the center line of the next-to-the-last stanza which appears in the quatrain. The rhyme and refrain scheme for the triplets is as follows: 

1. A

Smear the canvas, rich thick acrylic paint,

Paint given texture, mixing with thick gel,

Build her face artistically amazing.

Choose brushes used under her glam creative spell.

Build her face, artistically amazing.

Paint given texture, mixing with thick gel.

Blending on a pallate — tint, shade, or glaze.

Layer upon layer, image unfolds, blends.

Build her face artistically amazing.

Rainbow of paint, my medium well lends.

The method of attaining a correct shade shown.

Layer upon layer, image unfolds, blends.

——

Skin colour working, finding ideal tones.

Liveliness, painter’s skill, to wet canvass.

The method of attaining a shade shown.

——

Talent, raw paint, forming woman with sass.

Smear the canvass, rich thick acrylic paint,

Liveliness, painter’s skill, to wet canvass.

Smear the canvass, rich thick acrylic paint.
