The Wall


The wall’s infernal and internal
The wall’s akin to doubts within
The wall is vernal and external
The wall within is your Berlin

The wall will tout until you shout
The wall keeps in your thankless sin
The wall keeps out the hopeless doubt
The wall within is your Berlin

The wall will part and break a heart
The wall within divides Berlin
The wall of art keeps us apart
The wall within is your Berlin

The wall’s infernal and internal
The wall within is your Berlin

Author's Notes:

If you count them, I believe this is the only sonnet ever composed with 56 perfect and identical rhymes in it.

perfect rhyme, full rhyme, true rhyme: These terms refer to the immediately recognizable norm: true/blue, mountain/fountain.

identical rhyme: A word rhymes with itself, as in Emily Dickinson's 'Because I Could not Stop for Death'.


Kyrielle Sonnet:
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.

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
