Simply beautiful!

God Bless~
What a day that will be!
You have an interesting rhyme pattern. I couldn't quite figure it out in last stanza, though. Isn't it fun to play with words and make something beautiful out of them?
I have been learning a lot about poetry lately, and this is a fine villanelle. If the judges are familiar with this type of poem, this should truly be a winner. I have tried this one but gave up because it is very hard to do. Brilliant.
My own poetry is just a notch or two above the scrawls of angst-ridden teenagers, so I can't comment on the structure of the villanelle itself. What I can say, though, is this is positively beautiful. Your talent amazes me. Well done.
