May the 4th Be With You: Star Wars Day Villanelle

 Farewell, Han Solo

by

Miss Hannah Hart, a.k.a. Jennifer Susannah Devore

 

The Force Awakened, fresh tales to tell

Friends and enemies, today and long ago

Han Solo, we bid you a fond, hallowed farewell

Ridley, Boyega, Fisher, Ford and Hamill

Passionate protags, plus a pilot called Poe

Droids, smugglers, scoundrels and scavengers who sell

 

On the dunes, in the woods or high atop an island fell

Heroes fight for the Republic to repel a dark foe

Han Solo, we bid you a fond, hallowed farewell

 

Begat Han and Leia, out of a love forged so well

A son rife with woe, a son called Kylo

Who knew Ben would ring his father’s death knell

 

Supreme Leader Snoke, his generals run amok, harness the sun to quell

The last outpost of Hope, an Empire’s final crow

‘Twas not to be, the Resistance arrived to vanquish all hell

Han Solo, we bid you a fond, hallowed farewell

Han-solo
