Life On A Farm

Life on a farm is best
Life on a farm is best
Each day a new surprise
Each day a new surprise
New life each day is best
New life each day is best

To see life, growth and death
To see life, growth and death
Daily lessons in life
Daily lessons in life
Lessons in life and death
Lessons in life and death

The earth is the mother
The earth is the mother
From it is everything
From it is everything
The Mother earth it is
The Mother earth it is

Daily a life surprise
And to earth see a day
From the farm everything
New life lessons in death
Life it is the mother
On each growth is the best

paradelle is a modern poetic form which was invented by United States by Poet Laureate Billy Collins as a parody of the repetitions in the villanelle.
It is a poem of four six-line stanzas in which the first and second lines, as well as the third and fourth lines of the first three stanzas, must be identical. The fifth and sixth lines, which traditionally resolve these stanzas, must use all the words from the preceding lines and only those words. Similarly, the final stanza must use every word from all the preceding stanzas and only these words. Each link should have six syllables.
