On the isolated island


The Sun was slipping to the west,
Dark Clouds were filled with unrest,
A fight between the light n dark
Is ON on the isolated island…

The golden grace of Sun is still,
still against the dark clouds will,
The wild natures’ trade mark
Is ON on the isolated island…

Racing against the time are the winds,
leaving sound impressions on minds,
Together as our journey to the park
Is ON on the isolated island…

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.

Some popular rhyming schemes for a Kyrielle are: aabB, ccbB, ddbB, with B being the repeated line, or abaB, cbcB, dbdB.

So many things keep me busy...but I just found a way to store them forever. There is so much of Telugu in here as I just love my mothertongue....
