Three Poems (Kyrielle Sonnet, Villanelle, and Pantoum)

Kyrielle Sonnet for George Sand and Frédéric Chopin

Looking for their love supreme

To plant there a daybreak so actual,

God gave them hope to go forward

And palm flowers for his or her dream mattress.

Of their bare room with out home windows,

Not touched by the innuendos,

Music was their solution to be wed

And palm flowers had their dream mattress,

The cradle of their nascent thought

Might lower their essential Gordian knot-

Baptism of freedom within the head.

Then, palm flowers had their dream mattress.

Looking for their love supreme

And palm flowers for his or her dream mattress.
