Taken directly from the shadow poetry website:

A Kyrielle is a French form of rhyming poetry written in quatrains (a stanza consisting of 4 lines), and each quatrain contains a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the poem consists of only eight syllables. There is no limit to the amount of stanzas a Kyrielle may have, but three is considered the accepted minimum.

 

Forbidden

 

Smiles to strangers and smiles to friends

Outside home kindness never ends

Expect the same within our walls

In my house it was forbidden

 

Buy your friends two rounds of drinks

Recite fine toasts while glasses clink

Tis merry made in firelit halls

In my house it was forbidden

 

Rapt as others tell their stories

Eyes a goggle at their glories

Ne’er interrupt the tales so tall

In my house it was forbidden

 

Hear of woes befallen others

Demand justice for wronged brothers

Smite the bastards!  Make them fall!

In my house it was forbidden

 

Hugs and kisses, given freely

Understood don’t try bad feely

Your body’s yours even when small

In my house it was forbidden

 

Lock the doors when getting dressed

Or when bathing or making mess

To exploit others would take gall

In my house it was forbidden

 

Part of the world, laughing in it

Trying one’s best, hope to win it

To feel loved, standing proud and tall

In my house it was forbidden
