Whittled Words – Quatern Poem

Today, we try our hands at a new (to me) French poetic form that incorporates a refrain like in a Villanelle, and eight-syllable lines like in a Kyrielle.

No More To Say

The far-off tolling of a bell,
Breaks the silence where quiet dwells…

Witchy Woman

Wicked woven in midnight trance,
A magic called by Shaman’s dance…

Sizzling Sol

This giver of life,
Now burns it away,
Oh, the love of night,
On hottest of days…

Lost Sight

Envying those who have more,
We lose sight of how to give…

An Unholy Rite

Black wax drips like sticky tar,
Fire demons dance at their tips…

Whittled Words – Rhupunt Poem

The rhupunt has some variability to it, but also some rigid rules as well.

Canary Song

I don’t blame you,
The digging is hard work,
And this old rock,
Bears little ore to sell…

Train Tracks

The train tracks stretch for miles,
Steel and stone making the way…
