Say hello, don’t turn away – Kyrielle style poem

Dear readers,

The following poem is written in a French style of poetry known as a Kyrielle. It is made up of 4 lined stanzas of 8 syllables each, with the 4th line being a repeated one (refrain).

Also a small request from me to all of you to call your grandparents and talk to them today if possible πŸ™‚

margin-bottom: 0.25em;

Say hello, don’t turn away

In that old bamboo chair he sat:

“Where are they going, who is that?”

He just wanted a few warm smiles,

Just to Β catch up once in awhile.
p {
margin-bottom: 0.1em;

He loved to chat, to laugh and greet,

His dear old friends he loved to meet.

Wished for people to walk that mile,

Just to catch up once in awhile.
p {
margin-bottom: 0.25em;
