Locked: A Romancillo*

I am steadily locked
no powers can break me,
even heroes will fail,
Mr. Right has the key.

The Romancillo* is a short line version of the Romance.

The Romancillo is:

  • a narrative, it tells a story.
  • stanzaic, written in even number line which could be quatrains, sixains, etc.
  • syllabic, all lines are written in 5 or 6 syllables each.
  • rhymed, only assonant rhyme is used, xaxa xbxb xcxc etc., x being unrhymed.
