My Immortal [Quatern]

Each mirth and grief of drifting clouds
frigid days and lightless nights shrouds
musky rain’s trail out my window
Beloved, remind me of you

Marchen zephyr wending around
each mirth and grief of drifting clouds
enticed by your enthralling charm
-tousled hair and eyes so profound

Icy morning, dreary and bland
surrounds forested gothic land
each mirth and grief of drifting clouds
depicts tales of my immortal

A place my consort oft concealed
shadowy world alas revealed
yet the one place he never hides
each mirth and grief of drifting clouds

Quatern
A Quatern is a sixteen line French form composed of four quatrains. It is similar to the Kyrielle
and the Retourne. It has a refrain that is in a different place in each quatrain. The first line of
stanza one is the second line of stanza two, third line of stanza three, and fourth line of stanza
four. A quatern has eight syllables per line. It does not have to be iambic or follow a set rhyme
scheme.

  2. Your way with darkness and sadness has always intrigued me, yet you’re such a wonderful, positive woman. I must give credit to your imagination, then. ;) Nice work.

    • Thank you so much. There’s no involvement of imagination there, really, all that which exists is from pure experience…We learn and grow from it, but eventually it needs to be released.

      Miss you. xx
