Before the first light of sun
Peace envelopes world in its arms
Prepares it to meet the sun
Soaking in its essence so pure!
The birdsongs are yet to begin
Time floats in magical charms
In a calm, silent ocean
Where no sound can endure!
Morning star twinkles in dark heaven
Stretching simmering light arms
Bids earth goodbye till next morn
Moment that steals heart by lure!
Sunlight may not yet be seen
Apollo sleeping in nymph’s arms
Yet the soul wakes up to unseen
World of enlightenment sure!
A Kyrielle is a French form of rhyming poetry written in quatrains (a stanza consisting of 4 lines), and each quatrain contains a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the poem consists of only eight syllables. There is no limit to the amount of stanzas a Kyrielle may have, but three is considered the accepted minimum.
Some popular rhyming schemes for a Kyrielle are: aabB, ccbB, ddbB, with B being the repeated line, or abaB, cbcB, dbdB.
Mixing up the rhyme scheme is possible for an unusual pattern of: axaZ, bxbZ, cxcZ, dxdZ, etc. with Z being the repeated line. The rhyme pattern is completely up to the poet.
