Villanelle – Season of the Oft Depressed
2020©DSCoremans

This is the season of the oft depressed
In which we ignore rhyme and reason
We continue on and we never rest

The hardest work comes under stress
To throw the towel is treason
This is the season of the oft depressed

Like the sun we move from East to West
Our arrival marks the seasons
We continue and we never rest

Of the problems of life we stay abreast
It has been this way since Eden
This is the season of the oft depressed

Our secrets have now been confessed
From an open wound we are bleeding
This is the season of the oft depressed
We continue on but we never rest
