Her down to earth personality

Becomes visible for all to see:

Terrestrial angel bedecks the land,

In auburn foliage garishly grand.

Nature's canvass depicts flawlessly

Her down to earth personality,

That silently draws an owl - wise and old,

To her side where she stands out in gold.

Despite the dagger worn on her waist,

The wise old bird has good judgment and taste.

Her down to earth personality

Evokes trust in all life, wild and free.

The dagger she adorns on her cincture,

Meant for their protection to be ensured,

But their best defense from danger would be:

Her down to earth personality.


Note: This was meant as an attempt at writing a Quatern (described below), however I forgot about the 8 syllable rule - and therefore failed.

A Quatern is a sixteen line French form composed of four quatrains. It is similar to the Kyrielle and the Retourne. It has a refrain that is in a different place in each quatrain. The first line of stanza one is the second line of stanza two, third line of stanza three, and fouth line of stanza four. A quatern has eight syllables per line. It does not have to be iambic or follow a set rhyme scheme.
