A Kyrielle poem (week 29) about a youth recreational soccer league.
A Kyrielle poem written  for week 29 Poetic Explorations.

The shrieks and screams, they fill the air,
   a running children hurricane.
Their parents shout, no laissez-faire.
   The soccer season's now a-foot.

The weather's cool, the kids want more,
   oblivious to falling rain.
The kids rush on intent to score.
   The soccer season's now a-foot.

With gale force winds nets disappear,
   It matters not, no kids refrain,
As mothers dream of Tide or Cheer,
   The soccer season's now a-foot.

Author's Notes:
A Kyrielle is a French form of rhyming poetry written in quatrains (a stanza consisting of 4 lines), and each quatrain contains a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the poem consists of only eight syllables. There is no limit to the amount of stanzas a Kyrielle may have, but three is considered the accepted minimum.

While popular rhyming schemes for a Kyrielle are: aabB, ccbB, ddbB, with B being the repeated line, or abaB, cbcB, dbdB, my poem uses a different pattern: axaZ, bxbZ, cxcZ
with Z being the repeated line.

The rhyme pattern is completely up to the poet.
