Let’s fly away, down the valley

Today for W, I have  Wrapped Refrain

Let’s fly away, to skyline new 
tangerine sky and stars a few, 
along moss laden cobbled trail 
mellow moonlight on Daisies frail 
riding upon Aubergine sunrays, twilights sway 
towards a faraway horizon… let’s fly away



Down the valley, overlooking,
pristine rivulets gurgling,
perched on tree top, sang a Bluebird,
while listened Meerkats – enamoured,
earthly fragrance; nestled between hills and deep sea
carving a new dream in the wild… down the valley

The Wrapped Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of 2 or more stanzas of 6 lines each; Meter: 8,8,8,8,12,12 and Rhyme Scheme: a,a,b,b,c,c.
Refrain rule: In each stanza the first 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) in the first line must be the last 4 syllables (or 4 single-syllable words) at the end of the last line. This is what wraps each stanza with a repeated refrain …thus, the Wrapped Refrain.
Optional: The first stanza refrain and last stanza refrain can be joined (or loosely joined) together for the title of the poem.
