Guess the lady

I see you in your poetry,
That is the world where you are free,
Where you will live an endless time,
Immortal child of perfect rhyme.

The way you fill each form with care,
You spin your words into the air,
A poet with a style sublime.
Immortal child of perfect rhyme.

You look inside your thoughts so deep,
To that more secret self you keep.
To not read you would be a crime.
Immortal child of perfect rhyme.

I see you in your poetry –
Immortal child of perfect rhyme

Author notes

Kyrielle Sonnet:

A Kyrielle Sonnet consists of 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and a non-rhyming couplet). Just like the traditional Kyrielle poem, the Kyrielle Sonnet also has a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the Kyrielle Sonnet consists of only eight syllables. French poetry forms have a tendency to link back to the beginning of the poem, so common practice is to use the first and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet. This would also re-enforce the refrain within the poem. Therefore, a good rhyming scheme
for a Kyrielle Sonnet would be:
AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB -or- AbaB, cbcB, dbdB, AB.


I am in the habit of posting comments in the form of poems in the same style as poems I see that I like on AP.
This started life as such.

The poet in question is of course Amera.
