The first link is to existing works of the 12th century troubador who is believed to have invented the sestina form. The works are in the original Occitan language AND English.

Here is the Wikipedia page about him:

Here is a web form that aids the poet in constructing a sestina:

I just discovered this, thank you so much Marti. I read that the numerical sequence of the end word placement is a mathmatical equation which if you were to write a 7th stanza the sequence of words would go back to be the same as the first stanza. Now I can't find my source. But I have added a link to this post from the Sestina page. It is so cool that you and others provide these interesting side notes that enrich the information in reference section.

 

Thanks, ~~Tink
