Sarah at dVerse Poets invites us to write a Villanelle this month and this is our first contribution. Our second contribution has now been published at Where Seasons Meet and our third contribution Worth Waiting For can be found on our sister blog Tranature.
A Villanelle is a French verse form consisting of five three-line stanzas and a final quatrain, with the first and third lines of the first stanza repeating alternately in the following stanzas. These two refrain lines form the final couplet in the quatrain (the Poetry Foundation)
The prompt at dVerse remains open if you want to participate and there are now more than seventy contributions for you to enjoy.
Wishing you all a beautiful Tuesday,
with love from Eivor, Pearl and Xenia xxx

For those of you who read last month’s post Helping the Hounds of Macau we are delighted that the last remaining greyhounds have left the Canidrome on 26th March and have safely arrived in their adoptive countries. We are especially happy to see that the older greyhounds, including 13-year old Astrid, have made it and are now settled in their forever homes.
It makes us very happy to know they have comfortable beds and are being loved and cared for in a way every dog deserves to be loved and cared for.
A very big thank you again to Anima, GREY2K USA and Pet Levrieri for making this possible and to all the greyhound charities in Europe and the USA who have taken the greyhounds in and provided them with veterinary care, loving foster homes and forever homes.
