I really like this villanelle by Rick Mullin, "In a Taxi from de Gaulle," here.

Best,

Ed

Congratulations, Rick! You, sir, pulled off a Villanelle and did quite well by any measure.

Bravo! How delightful to see a villanelle in anapests and its highly informed take on Montmartre.

One of the finest villanelles I've ever had the pleasure to read. Rick has captured the mood perfectly. Kudos, Rick!

Wow, yes. What Susan said. Suddenly villanelles make sense to me in anapaests because this waltzes along and I can sing it!

Nice one Rick.
