Dancing by the Moonlight – B&P Shadorma & Beyond – Kyrielle Poem

A Kyrielle poem is made up of 4 stanzas with four lines each line having eight syllables (in metrics that is in tetrameter and people tend to write them in iamb feet* for those who are interested here’s the Link to our glossary). The capital being the refrain (which is born from the fourth line of the first stanza) – you’ll notice here that unlike the sonnet there is no fifth conclusive 2 line stanza created by the first and last line of the first stanza:

aabB
ccbB
ddbB
eebB

Oh what a night when you were there
Loud rap music was such a blare
People were coming and going
Singing and dancing with spring

You were a dream and I love it
Hand in hand we walked by moonlit
I don’t know if it’s just a fling
Singing and dancing with spring

Time seemed to be never-ending
We talked and we kept on swaying
Made me laugh and I was beaming
Singing and dancing with spring

Dancing is one way to lose weight
Who knows one day I’d be lightweight
It also keeps me from ageing
Singing and dancing with spring

For: B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond

    Oh to sing and dance with Spring! The meter went a bit awry, but the joy of spring made up for it!
