Upon The Hillside

Upon The Hillside

A Poem by Doodley
"

Kyrielle.

"
When last of breath shall ye exhale,
To leave thee gelid, ghostly pale,
Will Beauty's muse weep down from high,
Upon the hillside where ye lie?

Will starlight mourn in velvet trance,
Ye withered days of lost romance,
And bless her star fall that she cry,
Upon the hillside where ye lie?

Will night air drowse in minstrel song,
Ye memories of days gone, long,
And swathe thee in chorales sigh,
Upon the hillside where ye lie?

It matters naught should she appease,
Ye troubled soul shall rest at ease,
If Love's footfalls forever spry,
Upon the hillside where ye lie.

A first attempt at a modernised French medieval Kyrielle.

Any comments are greatly appreciated.

I love to hear what people have to say about the passing of souls, and it's consequences; most of those interpretations are pretty disturbing. This poem gives the word 'death' a somewhat soothing connotation, for me at least. And I love that! Another wonder, this one, in your own signature style. Great work!

" Will night air drowse in minstrel song,
Ye memories of days gone, long,
And swathe thee in chorales sigh,
Upon the hillside where ye lie?"

A amazing poem. A ancient feel to the good words and you are welcome Doodley.
Flows beautifully, nicely rhymed and distinctly medieval in its style and language. I have also learned something new today as I did not know what a Kyrielle and I thank you for that as well as a good read.

Dude! this is so so good. We have such similar writing styles! So happy to have found your work on here and getting around to reading it now. Dm me on here when you come out with new pieces you want me to read (I don't check my read requests too often because I get way too many read requests). You definitely did this style justice!

This write is simply amazing. I picture a lonely minstrel on a hill accompanied by a mandolin. The words flow like a song and the sentiment behind them touch the heart. Beautifully written.
