Perhaps One Day (Constanza)

The Constanza, created by Connie Marcum Wong, consists of five or more 3-line stanzas. Each line has a set meter of eight syllables. The first lines of all the stanzas can be read successively as an independent poem, with the rest of the poem weaved in to express a deeper meaning. The first lines convey a theme written in monorhyme, while the second and third lines of each stanza rhyme together.
Rhyme scheme: a/b/b, a/c/c, a/d/d, a/e/e, a/f/f………etc.

It started with a single kiss

So soft and gentle, warm and sweet

It knocked me sideways off my feet

The love it plugged up the abyss

Now brimming over with desire

This girl has gone and lit my fire

I’ve never felt something like this

All butterflies and hearts that skip

Do you feel it skitter and flip?

If it ends I will surely miss

Those special moments that we shared

Remember my love I declared 

This tender feeling is such bliss

Perhaps one day, one day maybe

You’ll be mine for eternity
