Ghazal Poetry In A Song

I’ve mentioned ghazal poetry; first I read one aloud by the poet Mir and then one by Mimi Khalvati, a poet of this time, on the blog. I learned a little about the form which originated in early Persian poetry and is known for its repetition, may be a single word repeated at the end of the lines.

This song by Sonlille wasn’t listed specifically as ghazal, and not all ghazals adhere to the strict form, but it reminded me of one when I heard it. I like her voice, music, and lyrics.
