Granddaughter and Xylophone

Who knows what an eye with little knowledge sees?
A xylophone with pink and yellow notes;
Tink, tonk your sounds fly up to the trees.

How to Write a Villanelle?

Villanelles are not easy to compose; for while on the one hand, they have strict rules pertaining to the repetition of verses, on the other hand, they are required to follow a rhyme scheme. There are only two repeating rhymes throughout, which means that each of the tercets uses the rhyme scheme ABA while the quatrain uses the rhyme scheme ABAA.
