Kyrielle Sonnet

Quatorzain made up of
(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 consist of only 8 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.

Example Poem:

Tell Me of Your Anger in Whispers (Kyrielle Sonnet)

Try not to speak in anger dear.
for then your meaning’s not so clear.
If I’ve screwed-up I’  be contrite.
Use whispers closely late tonight.

The words can wait, while anger cools
and then converse when reason rules.
I know you’re nearly always right,
Use whispers closely late tonight.

If I’ve done something that you hate,
advise me, but the words can wait.
I love you and will make it right..
Use whispers closely late tonight.

Try not to speak in anger dear.
Use whispers closely late tonight.
