~::~ Nocturnal Voyage ~::~

Fly away my dear

Towards blue skies clear

As stars whisper secrets sweet

Mellow dreams appeal

In pied shades of teal

Towards puffy clouds retreat        

Traversing afar

Wishing on a star

Skyward bound the solar way

Rosy Sun embarks

Sending fiery sparks

Ushering in a new day

Awaking from dreams

Of stars & moonbeams

Merrily the wind bellows

Kindling up all pores

Tiny eyes all sore

Sunrays streaming through windows



The Alouette

The Alouette, created by Jan Turner, consists of two or more stanzas of 6 lines each, with the following set rules:

 Meter: 5, 5, 7, 5, 5, 7

Rhyme Scheme: a, a, b, c, c, b


The form name is a French word meaning ‘skylark’ or larks that fly high, the association to the lark’s song being appropriate for the musical quality of this form. The word ‘alouette’ can also mean a children’s song (usually sung in a group), and although this poetry form is not necessarily for children’s poetry (but can be applied that way), it is reminiscent of that style of short lines.  Preference for the meter accent is on the third syllable of each line

    This is interesting and is a tough one too. Just to confirm, by meter, you are referring to the syllables right?
