Music Prompt # 59 ‘B.o.B – Airplanes’ ft. Hayley Williams and Eminem.

Paradelle of Wishes

I wish I may, I wish I can make a wish
I wish I may, I wish I can make a wish
To be able to fly like a bird, see the world
To be able to fly like a bird, see the world
I wish I may make a wish, see the world
To be able to fly like a bird, I wish I may

No pain, no heartache, no misunderstanding
No pain, no heartache, no misunderstanding
People are sympathetic and help each other
People are sympathetic and help each other
No pain, no heartache, people help each other
No misunderstanding, people are sympathetic

A big smile for each one, to start the day
A big smile for each one, to start the day
“Pay kindness forward” and spread peace
“Pay kindness forward” and spread peace
A big smile for each one and spread peace
“Pay kindness forward” to start the day

I wish I may, “pay kindness forward”
To be able to fly like a bird and spread peace
No pain, no heartache, a big smile for each one
No misunderstanding, people are sympathetic
“Pay kindness forward” and help each other
Make a wish: spread peace and help each other*

* The Paradell Structure

First Three Stanzas:
The first two lines as well as the third and fourth lines of the first three stanzas must be the same (repeat). Where it begins to get difficult and become more of a poetic puzzle is when reaching fifth and sixth lines. These lines must contain all the words from the preceding four lines within the stanza using them only once to form completely new lines.

Last Stanza:
For the most difficult piece of this poetic puzzle, the final stanza of the paradelle does not repeat like the preceding stanzas, rather the final six lines must contain every word from the first three stanzas, and only those words, again using them only once to form completely new lines.

The Design is simple:
Stanza 1: 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 4
Stanza 2: 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 8
Stanza 3: 9, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12
Stanza 4: 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18
