Fantastical aged tales
captivates young and old.
But they are nothing
once our own love story
was fin’lly written, told.

Flamenca or Seguidilla Gitana carries a fast staccato rhythm. It is a variation of the Seguidilla.

The Flamenca is:

  • stanzaic, can be written in any number of quintains.
  • syllabic, 6-6-5-6-6 syllables per line to imitate the rapid click of the heels of a dancer.
  • L2 and L5 assonate. (same vowel sounds)
