Go Vat Notes

Originating in Cambodia the Go Vat became popular among French poets in the late 1800s. It consists of a couplet which sets the rhyme of the subsequent stanzas, and a third line that repeats either in total, a phrase, or the last word throughout the poem. This gives the following structure and schema



and so on.


My Spirit by Terry Clitheroe

My spirit is no longer part of me
I gave it away to you most willingly
Together with my heart.
I would share it all with thee
And boast for all the world to see
Willingly giving you my heart.
Tell me of your love I will agree
And share my life to infinity
See again I offer you my heart.
Isn't love the most simplistic plea
Showing you are open and free
Infinity calls let's share one heart
