Triolet Hour

Hello Poetry Lovers

Welcome back to one of my favourite art forms, the triolet poem.

Now, the first is by an up-and-coming poet who has not kept to the rules, in fact she has downright cheated and laughed in their faces. She claims the last line simply works better like that, and who are we to tell her what to do, we’re not the boss of her etc etc…

Now the second triolet is beautifully done by an even more up-and-coming poet Trisha Broomfield, who had the good grace to stick to the rules

Auntie Florrie 

Auntie Florrie, you would eff and blind 

And you only watched ITV

Under heavy make-up, you were lined 

Auntie Florrie, you would eff and blind 

People had to take you as they find 

Never watching that snotty BBC 

Auntie Florrie, you would eff and blind 

You were so beautiful to me 

Now for Trisha’s classier one;

Chair Triolet

I sit in my writing chair and swivel

I thought that it would help me write, this chair

but I’m turning out a load of drivel

I sit in my writing chair and swivel

my mood is really quite uncivil

I think up plots and flick my hair

I sit in my writing chair and swivel

I thought that it would help me write, this chair.

Wasn’t that just great?! Triolets are really such fun and I dare you to send one in. Trisha’s penned some more corkers and has kindly given me permission to show them in part II

Thanks for tuning in, PL’s. More poetry capers soon….
