The Mystery Portal: Monchielle Stanza

The mystery portal,
holds secrets far beyond.
What lies there behind,
nobody till now knows?
Stands at the end of wynd.

The mystery portal,
guarding for centuries,
the realms unheard, unseen.
Peace, pain or heaven, hell
no one has ever seen.

The mystery portal,
hides deep in its heart,
riches infinite,
or misery untold.
Thoughts change like day and night.

The mystery portal,
an enigma to fight.
A puzzle unsolved,
dilemma bewitching,
mysteries behold. 

This form is the creation of the popular Norwegian poet, Jim T Henriksen. Usually has four stanzas. Each stanza consists of five lines of six syllables. The first line of each stanza is a refrain and in the four following lines, lines three (3) and five (5) Rhyme.
