Example of Sestina

Sestinas are 6x 6 line stanzas containing 6 end words, plus a three line ending called an envoi, and you could be forgiven for thinking they're a type of word game in terms of form. The stanzas all contain particular end words, which are used as a group in a 3 line ending being the envoi. This is tougher than it looks, and the patterns vary considerably, because of the size of the poem, which is 248 words.

Examples of Sestina:

For example, the six end words are apple, orange, cherry, oak, willow, rose, 123456
Each stanza uses the six words as
123546
615243 (a standard sestina technique)
615243 would be rose, apple, willow, orange, oak, cherry.
The envoi will include all six words.
