A murmur of wishes buried
I shoveled out of my heart
No one saw the peeping light 
But the sun set over my dark

Brimming with quiet joy
He had made his mark 
I could tell no one about it 
When the sun set over my dark 

Unbridled I then got 
Singing like the lark
My world so illuminated 
As the sun set over my dark 

*The Kyrielle is a French four-line stanza form that has a refrain in the fourth line. The possible rhyme schemes are: aabb, abab, aaab, abcb. The poem needs to be at least two stanzas long, otherwise the refrain is not really a refrain, is it? 😊
