[R] Fit a smooth closed shape through 4 points

I have sets of 4 x/y points through which I would like to fit closed,
smoothed shapes that go through those 4 points exactly. smooth.spline
doesn't like my data, since there are only 3 unique x points, and even
then, i'm not sure smooth.spline likes making closed shapes.
Might anyone else have suggestions for fitting algorithms I could employ?
shapepoints = structure(c(8.9, 0, -7.7, 0, 0, 2, 0, 3.8), .Dim = c(4L,
2L), .Dimnames = list(NULL, c("x", "y")))
# repeat the first point to close the shape
shapepoints = rbind(shapepoints, shapepoints[1,])
