In a place we call Fairy Tale
The hero is a man as we knew
Times have changed, a woman we hail
Princess Charming to the rescue

Someone in distress, who’d we call?
She would come out of the blue
Somebody was kidnapped in the mall
Princess Charming to the rescue

Firemen cannot contain the fire
She’ll help the people as she flew
She’s got all the skills we admire
Princess Charming to the rescue

In a place we call Fairy Tale
Princess Charming to the rescue*

* A Kyrielle Sonnet consists of 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and a non-rhyming couplet). Just like the traditional Kyrielle poem, the Kyrielle Sonnet also has a repeating line or phrase as a refrain (usually appearing as the last line of each stanza). Each line within the Kyrielle Sonnet consists of only eight syllables. French poetry forms have a tendency to link back to the beginning of the poem, so common practice is to use the first and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet. This would also re-enforce the refrain within the poem. Therefore, a good rhyming scheme for a Kyrielle Sonnet would be:

AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB -or- AbaB, cbcB, dbdB, AB.
