#20 Sevenling

The Sevenling was created by Roddy Lumsdon, and as its name suggest is a seven line poem consist of three parts. Lines one to three consisting of contrasting or connected, or statements consiting of details, names or possibilities.
Similarly lines four to six should be relative or a further expansion of the first stanza.
Line seven can be a summary, a punchline, strange twist or a narrative summary.
There is no Title required or set meter.
The Sevenling should be mysterious, offbeat, or disturbing, and give a feeling that only part of the story is being told.
He loved three things alone:
White peacocks, evensong,
Old maps of America.

He hated children crying,
And raspberry jam with his tea,
And womanish hysteria.

… And he married me.

Anna Akhmatova
