Décima Challenge 31 Poets Collected

12 Poets from last week’s challenge of ONE and their Décimas. All links open in a new window when clicked on.

If you like quiet tequila nights, disastrous endings, and even some lovin’, you’ve come to the right place. Visit these 12 poets and find a style of poetry you may not have read before, even though you think you have. There are so many forms of poetry and this one is a cultural one for the Latin culture originating in Spain and continues to be important today in social, political messages and especially in Latin music.

One…And Lost

The night has come, the day is done.
they sleep the sleep of nevermore.
The sleep of peace, the sleep of war:
Both are the same, an endless one.

Never again to feel the sun,
the song of love, the joy of tears,
no highs, no lows, no dreams, no fears.
consigned to cold and endless terms
of rain, of mud, of frost, of worms!
Sweet lives lost, in timeless arrears.
