A Tale of Love (and Woe) – Lovers' Song #2

Knight #2


Princess #2



A note on form and inspiration for this piece:  As stated in my previous post, each of these is a katauta.  Steaming from a ballad I wrote some time ago, the first is a note from the knight and the second is the response from the princess.  While the first pairing utilized the syllable count 5 / 7 / 5 (similar to a haiku–though this form predates the haiku), this pairing is offered up in (from what I've read) the more traditional 5 / 7 / 7.
