Write a Kyrielle 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. More information and an example.
There plenty people who prefer a pack mule to a jeep or truck. Believe me, a truck or jeep may break down, but they would never fall prey to a predator like a mountain lion, a bear or any such animal. Of course there is the occasional car thief to consider.
Very nice. I can relate to that from stories told to me by my great-grandfather. I was fortunate to have spoke to him a few years before he died. He was a sheriff on horseback in McDowell County WV. Thanks for opening up that memory. Best wishes.
I thoroughly enjoyed your story poem about that old prospector and his mule. I liked the dialect used. Your use of rhymed couplets was very effective. Good use of imagery to provide a good poetic portrait of that mule. Well done!
this needs six stars, but I only have five. Ones that this poem might remind people of may be few. there is one that comes to mind. No, two, well there may be more. You may like my website:www.havepenwilltravel.co
I love a good Western poetry! This is really heartfelt and sweet. Poor old Molly the Mule. I especially loved the ending. The photo is perfect for this poem. I loved it! Well done. Respectfully, -January L.
