Remembrance


Kyrielle Sonnet, 14 lines, rhyme: AabB;ccbB;ddbB;AB

“Remembrance”

I keep you in my warm embrace
though you are gone another place.
Above, where only birdies sing
with song of love’s remembering.

I see your face in all that’s true:
the sunlight reminisces you;
the feathered edge of raindrop’s ping
with song of love’s remembering.

I hear your voice in turtle doves
that whimper when they sing of love
An old, old story I still ring
with song of love’s remembering.

I keep you in my warm embrace
with song of love’s remembering.
