Yesterday has finally gone! : Quatern (Letters from the soul #25)


Yesterday has finally gone!
And here's a new, roseate dawn
Acting like morphine to your soul
Showing you a new path and goal.

To the pool of tears, don't get drawn
Yesterday has finally gone!
Collect the pieces and rebuilt
your life one more time, bit by bit.

Your cracked heart will rejoin again
The way sun shines after the rain
Yesterday has finally gone!
Do not cling to the spiky thorn.

You will slip again in this road
Tired of carrying grief as load,
But now run like a sporty fawn
Yesterday has finally gone!

Note: This is a quatern poem. Quatern is a 16 line French poetry form composed of 4 quatrains. It has a refrain that is in a different place in each quatrain. 
A quatern has eight syllables per line and can follow any rhyme pattern. 
The refrain in this poem is: "Yesterday has finally gone!" which you can spot at different places in each quatrain. The rhyme pattern that I followed is aabb ccdd eeff.

    This is one of the first forms I recall learning at school; it can seem simple, but not so much in practice! YAM xx

  4. I simply enjoyed this poem ... It is so full of positivism and the imagery is spot on. My fav lines are:

    'Your cracked heart will rejoin again
    The way sun shines after the rain
    Yesterday has finally gone!'
