Romantic Triolets

Hello Poetry Lovers

Are we settling nicely into 2022 now? Or like me, you’re treading with caution?

I’ve gone back to the world of the Triolet form, if only to feature this beautiful piece from the genuis talented poet Connaire Kensit

Dobby and I are huge fans of Connaire’s work, and my heart was particularly captured by this beautiful triolet. This will be followed by a more ruthless poet’s work, but will not be in the same class. I’m warning you now! Read on;

True Life Romance

The truth is exciting;

Romance is prosaic.

Though not always delighting,

The truth is exciting.

No fictional writing

Can match life’s mosaic.

The truth is, “Exciting

Romance” is prosaic.

Wasn’t that beautiful, such clever and vivid words. Thank you, Connaire. Lovely piece.

The following triolets are more bitter-sweet but they seem to fall into this subject. More failed romances really.

Tap Routine 

You told me I had kaleidoscope eyes

In between tap dancing classes

How was I to know it was all lies?!

You told me I had kaleidoscope eyes 

But it was all a clever disguise 

You just liked to make passes

You told me I had kaleidoscope eyes

In between tap dancing classes

Husband Triolet

My husband would never give you the eye

He’s not that sort of chap

What you’ve heard is a complete lie

My husband would never give you the eye

He swore to me he’d rather die 

It’s just all a big mishap 

My husband would never give you the eye

He’s not that sort of chap 

Traditional 1974

Wasn’t that fun?! Thank you again to the lovely poet and cat lover, Connaire. Thanks for tuning in, PL’s. Stay tuned for some more poetry antics real soon…
