    The French TRIOLET is a poetic form consisting of only 8 lines, 5 of which are repeated refrains. The refrains within the triolet: the first, fourth and seventh lines AND the second and eighth lines. Lines three and five rhyme with one, and six rhymes with two.



    Examples 1 & 2 by Jan Haag:

    #xi Triolet II

    Sorrow and freedom are as light
    as the kiss of a peacock's wing.
    Grace, iridescent, lifts the night.
    Sorrow and freedom are as light
    as the blue-green and blue of sight
    within eyes gold and shimmering.
    Sorrow and freedom are as light
    as the kiss of a peacock's wing.

    #xii Triolet III

    I grieve for my mother being gone.
    I feel great freedom after her flight.
    Lying under the trees on the lawn,
    I grieve for my mother being gone.
    I see life's grace going on and on,
    observe the heart growing erudite.
    I grieve for my mother being gone.
    I feel great freedom after her flight.
