Born to be alive – Eugenia


ideal worlds play a symphony

angels in four-part harmony

the cosmos an eternal guide

it carries my soul and my pride

mellow serenades fill the skies

daytime hellos nighttime goodbyes

life’s magic an eternal guide

it carries my soul and my pride

my soul sings born to be alive

my spirit determined to thrive

life’s journey a magical ride

it carries my soul and my pride

Poetry form Kyrielle –

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.

    • It’s interesting that the title brought a certain song into your head! I was listening to the song while writing the poem. With that said, I think one has to be a fan of music in the late 1970s or early 1980s to know and like this song.

      • That is the song, and it is back in my head! This song is a major earworm for me whenever it comes up 🙂
        That is neat that is the song you were listening too!
        It’s a beautiful poem! Back when I did more writing I did something similar to myself, but I think it involved a Sarah Mclaughlin song 😉
