Change is coming.
DDPC Round 21 Image

Indomitable snowmen slough,
such a horrific way to go,
exposing twisted limbs so gray;
there is no climate change, you say?

A dead tree branch is made to grow
an arm, replacing fallen snow.
Adding a leg brings a bright day;
there is no climate change, you say?

Black crows on the limbs caw of woe
as snowmen walk south with a glow
of vengeful faces, seeking prey;
there is no climate change, you say?

Indomitable snowmen slough,
there is no climate change, you say?

14 lines

Form: Kyrielle Sonnet

Format: three rhyming quatrain stanzas and a non-rhyming couplet.

Rhyme scheme: AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB

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.
