SADDLE UP SALOON; COLLEEN’S DOUBLE ENNEAD CHALLENGE NO. 4

I have chosen the Fates as my theme and used the rhyme scheme Spanish Quintain (Quintilla) of A-A-B-B-A

Fates

On life’s chequered board
the dice cast records,
To give what is preordained in game of life,
Fates let loose endless strife,
Turmoil overlords.
Not known what stars foretell
bid dreams a farewell,
You want to ride stormy,tempestuous tides,
Your efforts it derides-
striking a death knell.
Nonchalantly you ride
to drown in rough tide,
Defiant and buoyed,you roll with wild surf,
Light as you shed Life’s scurf,
Laughing as fates shied.
