The Shadorma

A syllabic poem. probably also from Spain. It has six lines - (a sextet) with a syllable pattern:3/5/3/3/7/5

Schematically:
xxx
xxxxx
xxx
xxx
xxxxxxx
xxxxx


Thinking why
I do certain things.
What makes me
Act that way?
Early life experience?
For some things, maybe.

But some things
May go farther back
Than childhood.
If it’s true
That we have lived many lives,
Are those mem’ries there?
