Kyrielle Sonnet
Bookmark and Share

A Kyrielle Sonnet consists of 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and  a non-rhyming couplet).  Just like the traditional Kyrielle poem, the Kyrielle Sonnet also has a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing  as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the Kyrielle Sonnet consists of only eight syllables. French poetry forms have a tendency to link back to the beginning of the poem, so common practice is to use the first and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet. This would also re-enforce the refrain within the poem. Therefore, a good rhyming scheme for a Kyrielle Sonnet would be:

AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB - or - AbaB, cbcB, dbdB, AB.

Goal Ahead (Kyrielle Sonnet)

Ambling along the sunlit road,
Decisions made begin to goad.
As the seasons change, change your mind,
Life's treasures are for you to find.

Angst better be left on the way,
Take in the freshness of the day.
With open mind, let nothing bind,
Life's treasures are for you to find.

The goal is just around the bend,
Crossing barriers as you wend,
Divine bliss, when you meet your kind,
Life's treasures are for you to find.

Ambling along the sunlit road,
Life’s treasures are for you to find.
