George Sand and Frédéric Chopin

Searching for their love ideal

To plant there a dawn so real,

God gave them hope to go ahead

And palm flowers for their dream bed.


In their naked room without windows,

Not touched with the innuendos,

With written words for music wed

And palm flowers for their dream bed,


The cradle of their nascent  thought

Could cut their main Gordian knot-

Baptism of freedom in the head

And palm flowers for their dream bed.


Searching for their love ideal

And palm flowers for their dream bed.

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.
