The Path of the Donkey King – Kyrielle

The Path of the Donkey King

I wrote this poem as a response to a year-long project I am a part of called, Take Me Deeper. I am leading the poetry/writing group, and each week I upload my response to the week’s focus.

This poetry form, Kyrielle, is a french form and follows the rules below:

Four line stanzas (quatrains), rhyming sequence – aabb, ccbb, ddbb, the last line in each stanza is the same. I cheated a bit, because each line should only have eight syllables.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.
