The Seadna is an Irish form so the first and last syllable, or word, or phrase is the same. The stanza is a quatrain with a syllable scheme of 8, 6, 8, 6 and end rhymes of A, B, C, B. Lines one and three have two syllable last words while two and four end with one syllable words. Line three rhymes internally with its end word and line four rhymes internally first with line two’s end and then with line three’s end. There is alliteration throughout and the last word of line four alliterates internally with the nearest stressed syllable.

the wind with all of its desire
can’t capture, only bend
frustration blows as it bestows
ire and grows with more wind
