Abstract: 
When the elements and different components of a literary work are studied and their relation to each other and to the totality of the work is made clear, a reader can claim that she/he has had a formalistic reading of the work. Such a reading facilitates commenting on how the elements and components of the work are interrelated (vertically and horizontally).
In this paper, the form and structure of a Ghazal (sonnet) of Bidel Dehlavi are re-read, using the intratextual signs. The first line reads:
YEK TAARE MU GAR AZ SARE DONYE GOZASHTEI
SAD KAHKESHAN ZE OJE SORAYYA GOZASHTEI
The theme of this Ghazal which is continuously repeated all through the poem is "advice to return to oneself and put under observation one’s inner self in the bed of the hastening and transitory time". The subject matters of movement, passing, transition and transformation are spread all through the Ghazal. However the link between the lines of the Ghazal is not the sort of link to create a "bodily structure", rather each line of this Ghazal is a separate bead, related to the other beads by a string (the subject matters of movement and passing of time) creating a necklace (a Ghazal).
