Welcome to Francis the Frenchie’s Daily Triolet Poetry Challenge! 

A triolet (tree-o-lay) is a poem consisting of eight lines. Its roots run deep into the history of France during the 13th century, and the style is linked to the rondeau, or “round poem.”

Each day, I’ll present a word prompt as a treat for writers to include in their tries at a triolet. When you complete your triolet, either enter it in the comments or create a pingback.

Here is how a triolet is structured:

A (first line)

B (second line)

A (rhymes with first line)

A (repeat first line)

a (rhymes with first line)

B (rhymes with second line)

A (repeat first line)

B (repeat second line)

As an example, I’m offering the triolet titled “Terminal Triolet” by Robert Lee Brewer:

“The moving sidewalk is about to end,”

And I’m not sure where to go

To meet my long distance girlfriend.

“The moving sidewalk is about to end,”

Repeats the disembodied voice again

As the conveyor conveys me slow.

“The moving sidewalk is about to end,”

And I’m not sure where to go.

Today’s word prompt: attach.

After joining the pack with your triolet, be sure to visit, comment, and share the poems of others that get you wagging your tail!
