Pain swells in the bosom of a song.
Long before the first note of refrain,
restrains fail to cease tears from falling.
Losing you, I wish will be my gain.

C is for Conachlonn.
The Conachlonn is simply the Irish version of chained verse, examples found at Celtia.
The elements of the Conachlonn are:
written in any number of lines.
syllabic at the poet’s discretion, often 8 or 9 syllable lines
assonant chained rhymed, meaning the vowel sound of the last syllable of the line is repeated at the beginning of the next line.
written with dunadh, the beginning syllable ends the poem.
