TWO TRIOLETS by Jean Kay

Day 23 of  NaPoWriMo “Today, let’s try writing triolets. A triolet is an eight-line poem. All the lines are in iambic tetramenter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines. This means that the poem begins and ends with the same couplet. Beyond this, there is a tight rhyme scheme (helped along by the repetition of lines) — ABaAabAB.”  I created two.

 

TWO TRIOLETS

 

Today was my Father’s birthday

I think he’d like my poetry,

he was always so supportive.

Today was my Father’s birthday

and one gift to him I could give

would be my book called Morning Light.

Today was my Father’s birthday

I think he’d like my poetry.

 

 

If I could write a best seller

I doubt it would be poetry,

perhaps I should try a romance.

If I could write a best seller

I’d need to plan well in advance.

I know writing isn’t easy.

If I could write a best seller

I doubt it would be poetry.
