_________________

"Zestina" is a play on the word "Sestina," which is a 39-line non-rhyming (typically) poem with a specific form consisting of 6 6-line stanzas and 1 3-line stanza called the envoy. In each stanza, the end-words are repeated and arranged in the following form: 
1 2 3 4 5 6
6 1 5 2 4 3
3 6 4 1 2 5
5 3 2 6 1 4
4 5 1 3 6 2
2 4 6 5 3 1
1 2
3 4
5 6
For the envoy, there is some debate regarding how the end-words should be arranged--one text* says that 5 3, 1 2, 4 6 should be followed--but others often disagree and cite the repetition of the first stanza as the gold standard. And, then, poets (who generally follow their own muse) often have their own ideas as to how the overall form will play out in their own poems (poetic license).

"Zestina" could be a comprehensive poetry site dedicated to the tricky Sestina. Unfortunately, there is little profit in such heady and literary sites--such a site would have to be a labor of love, and, unfortunately, we cannot sell at "labor of love" costs.

However, the term itself suggests a colorful and lively website, perhaps in the tech department. Who doesn't like a zesty website with literary overtones? There is no law that says the owner must use this as a poetry site.

Perhaps the owner could develop a poetry word tumbler, or if you are especially talented in coding, a sestina tumbler: the user plugs in six words, desired order for envoy, and parameters regarding use of each word (for example, use as a root word), and Voila! A computer-generated sestina!

The term "Zestina" has not been found in the USPTO.gov or Trademarkia.com data bases.

1. Bingo
2. (Dread) Lock (s) (ed) (et)
