In troubadour works, the end of the poem or song often includes a short stanza or a line indicating authorship, or information about the addressee.

Here’s an example of the tornada:
[ ]

It can also tell you something about the recipient:
[ ]

Following examples like those cited above, my fictitious Tenson between Collette de la Tor and Jaufre di Fiorenza ends with this couplet:

Domna, as the heavens command
I will remain here, close at hand
And keep alive no hopes but one –
that in Fiorenza, the sun will come.

The character writing this stanza was Jaufre di Fiorenza, so I’ve put a reference to Fiorenza to indicate who the author is.

Throughout the poem, I have also kept a running reference to nature’s cycles – clouds, sun, night time all being imagery for deeper emotions or psychological influences. References to death were a vieled poetic image for sensual ecstacy, which would be a taboo subject.
