A kyrielle is made of quatrains that rhyme. Each stanza (that is a quatrain) has a line that repeats, so a line from a previous stanza. That line usually (but does not necessarily have to) be the last line in the stanza.

Each line in the poem has eight syllables. There is no limit to the number of stanzas. Usually there are three or more stanzas.

Any type of rhyme scheme can be used.


    The Right Is What Feels Wrong

    I walked throughout my house today
    Reflecting nights too long far gone
    And thinking thoughts that have no say -
    Tonight, the right is what feels wrong.

    I tend to wonder 'bout my days,
    How short they are, and yet so long
    They take my fragile breath away -
    Tonight, the right is what feels wrong.

    A life is but a thread that frays,
    And slips from hands to where it longs
    To lie--I will escape to pray.
    Tonight, the right is what feels wrong.
