Your Host: Bronze Dragon
For this challenge, write a poem using the form presented and your fellow Starlite poets will vote for the one they like the best! The form is:
The triolet (pronounced "tree-o-lay") consists of two quatrains (stanzas of four lines each), so this is a short form of poetry. The stanzas can be separated or written together as one long verse, and you can string multiple triolets together in a poem. The challenge with the triolet is that there is a lot of repetition of lines, which can make it somewhat difficult to create. The form is as below - I've provided a simplified method of instruction (no "a/b/a/b" patterns):
Line 1 ("a", for the poetry buffs in the room)
Line 2 ("b")
Line 3 (rhymes with Line 1, or "a")
Line 4 - this line is a repetition of the entire Line 1, not just a rhyme!
Line 5 (rhymes with Lines 1 and 3, or "a" again)
Line 6 (rhymes with Line 2, or "b")
Line 7 - this is another repetition of Line 1, not just the rhyme.
Line 8 - this line is a repetition of Line 2, not just the rhyme.
Please click the banner above for an example of the form!
Simply write a poem using the form above. The winner of FOS is decided by all Starliters. The Host - Bronze Dragon - presents a new form each week. Challenge ends on June 30th or upon reaching 15 poems entered.
FOS is a voting challenge - please return at the end of the challenge to vote for the poem using the form that you liked best. Any entries not following the form given may be removed by the Host prior to voting.
Thanks, and Have Fun!
