How to write a Kyrielle Poem
How to write a Kyrielle Poem

In November, we will be exploring various “elle” style poems, including the Kyrielle, Diatelle, Octelle, and Terzanelle! This week, we’ll be challenging you to write a Kyrielle. A kyrielle has 8 syllables per line, 4 lines per stanza, with the final line repeating in refrain, and usually follows an abaB rhyming structure throughout the poem.
