~::~ Fly Me To The Moon ~::~

After a long time I trying hard to break away from the shackles of poet’s block and attempting to come up with new poems…

The only way I can indeed get back and get the inspiration and motivation to write  is by attempting various forms of poetry.

And here I have found a brand new form  – Kyrielle Sonnet.

Well I have done the Kyrielle before too –  you can find the poem here 

So this time its a Kyrielle Sonnet  –  blending both the forms of kyrielle refrain and sonnet style

Read the end of the post for the exact description 🙂 for now here’s the poem

~::~ Fly Me To The Moon ~::~


Upon svelte dreams of velvet skies

Drifting past iridescent highs

Every spectacle makes me swoon

Oh firefly! Fly me to the moon


Feathery clouds of midnight blue

Where I’m headed, I have no clue

Breathtaking moments, make me croon

Oh Firefly! Fly me to the moon


Leaving trail of cottony hue

Transcending sense of dejavu

My heart, it sings a merry tune

Oh Firefly! Fly me to the moon


Upon svelte dreams of velvet skies

Oh Firefly! Fly me to the moon


Kyrielle Sonnet

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.
