If I were to write a novel

176-10-october-9th-2016

THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Autumn Song” by Daniel Mark Epstein: flower, danger, torn, gobbled, regrets, brindled, fleeting, cargo, leaving, tongues, hearts, everyone

If I were to write a novel
All the intrigues but then blissful
Some with regrets and with torn hearts
Brindled and fleeting on some parts

With flowers and dangers for some
Nothing left unturned, not a crumb
Gobbled up by conflict, top of the chart
Bridled and fleeting on some parts

A cargo full of eclectic and exciting bits
Can’t wait to publish, hope it’s such a hit
I hope it’s got some lessons to impart
Bridled and fleeting on some parts

If I were to write a novel
Bridled and fleeting on some parts*

* 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.
