Poetic Form: Kyrielle

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

The kyrielle is a French four-line stanza form that is extremely flexible. The only solid rule is that it has a refrain in the fourth line. There are a few options when it comes to rhyme scheme including: aabb, abab, aaab, abcb. Once you’ve settled on one of the four options stay  consistent in your stanzas. There is also no set amount of stanzas. There have to be at least two for the refrain to repeat in the fourth line. But beyond that you’re able to play with it as much as you want so long as you can keep that refrain going.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
