    Fine work — all the economy of winter, shoring up her heat. Really lovely final image.

    What form is this, (10/10/12/10 syllables)?

    Thank you!

    To answer Marie’s question: the form has no “official” designation, simply an organic response to the material. Having said that, I know subconciously I’m affected by a great deal of Asian poetry, both past and present, and perhaps this form is simply a response to and a homage to such sources. Thanks for your kind words about the poem!
