She ignored our pleas for full
for three years scared us with flame
Shower from sun, a naughty game
from rain goddess’s mischief mill.
That was not all, there was more still,
Prank hidden in that quirky heart
So she started raining so smart
She spilled day in and day out
Till the land was filled to sprout
In thunder we heard her laugh shrill.
Rules of Decima-
A decima is an early 10-line Spanish poetic form, with a distinct break after the first 4. It uses an 8-syllable line and has an unusual but characteristic rhyme scheme.
The decima must follow this rhyme pattern: A/B/B/A (pause) A/C/C/D/D/C and consists of ten lines of 8 syllables.
