2015 Day 12 – A simple desultory Sapphic or how I was NaPoWriMoed into submission.

When enchantment strikes one who’s sworn to love you

Hold on to her tight through her many changes

Through the tortured night, loving her and waiting

Until dawn brings her home.

Note: the prompt was to write a poem in Sapphics. While I enjoy strict rhyme schemes and patterns of repetition, I’m  not fond of  formal metre – dactyls and iambs and all that malarkey. And it’s a very busy day today, so this is all you get.
