A Triolet
« on: July 30, 2015, 09:30:00 AM »
As I am trying my hand at various form poems, this was necessary. It is my first and last triolet.

A Triolet

This triolet is trying,
but I’ll keep working it for a while;
if I said it were easy, I’d be lying—
this triolet is trying.
I can see why the form is dying,
‘though the French think it beguiles.
This triolet is trying,
but I’ll keep working it for a while.

Despite Sio's examples to the contrary, I still  think triolets are difficult to do.  I like this one Kate - you did it very well -- its playful as the form seems to call for.  and it is clearly another step in your waltz through the list of classical forms.  I'm interested to see what's next.  Make sure your you've secured your chin-strap tightly when you get to the sestina.
