    -- Violet and Verdancy --

    Verisimilitudes of verdant vales
    Voracious violets veil verities
    Velleities unveil as it's impaled

    Saturnine scams sent sempiternal sails
    Spill sourness, spectacles of scarcity
    Verisimilitudes of verdant vales

    Asthenic aesthetic in April's ales
    Arbitrated, ailed by audacity
    Velleities unveil as it's impaled

    Venerations of veiled violet vales
    Volatile, vague's verdant veracity
    Verisimilitudes of verdant vales

    Euphemisms err, erroneous ails
    Educate the elegies' enemies
    Velleities unveil as it's impaled

    Freedom, 'twas thou who made pellucid sales
    Truth, 'twas thou who called for thine audibly
    Verisimilitudes of verdant vales
    Velleities unveil as it's impaled

    Now this is certainly a more difficult type than a rondeau!

    In the villanelle, it metaphorizes violets as the seemingly exquisite, and bold show-offs, while the verdant vales (inspired from @altafmurtaza's post name) as the truthful, yet underrated and overlooked matters.

    Alliteration was also used, as for interest hehehe, and last, but not the least, every line is decasyllabic! (having 10 syllables)
