Potlatch - Kyrielle something you love
"I Love You More" by Sandra du Plessis

The day we met began the change
 you lifted my heart from the floor;
we clicked, our lonely lives exchange
each passing day I love you more.

We grow and know we can't turn back
from here, we only can adore
each other's soul ,our love on track;
each passing day I love you more.

My trusted friend you're my soulmate
from far away, you live ashore;
we sense our hearts are feeling great
each passing day I love you more.

We talk each day for five long years
we don't get tired or even bored;
you never caused me any tears
each passing day I love you more.


Author Notes
Related to love--something you love--anything such as rain, trees, people, etc. Please keep it clean. Length AT LEAST 8 lines.


*A Kyrielle is a French form of rhyming poetry written in quatrains (a stanza consisting of 4 lines)

*each quatrain contains a repeating line or phrase as a refrain. ( phrase may be a 4 syllable part of the line--this is the refrain--usually, it is the last part of the line OR it can be the entire line)

Each line within the poem consists of ONLY eight syllables. I could not find a definitive yes/no about the meter. However, I believe it is TETRAMETER with the lines being 8 syllables in length. PLEASE try to write yours in tetrameter. A big THANK YOU to Helen for pointing out some inconsistencies in the original copy.

There is no limit to the number of stanzas a Kyrielle may have, but three is considered the accepted minimum.

*Some popular rhyming schemes ( not limited to these choices) for a Kyrielle are aabB ddbB (aabBccbddbB),
or abaB, , dbdB (abaBcbcBdbdB) with B being the refrain.
