Poem Please Me - A triolet

April 13, 2011 “Poetry is the language in which man explores his own amazement.” Christopher Fry

This is one that kept needing work, but it was a good challenge to write, to keep the structure. Thanks to for the great poetry ideas!

Poems please me every time

They sing, at least I hope they sing

peculiar nuance of line.

Poems please me every time

and warble a bit in their refrain.

Though laboring at similes,

Poems please me every time.

The words, the words are just the thing.


  1. I'm so impressed with your poetry this month. I love that you keep trying new things.

  2. Ah, don't you love it when it's birthed. The labor is intense, but the time and pain is worth it!

  3. I love all the different forms of poetry I'm learning by reading your blog! I've spent the last half hour finding them all over the web - perhaps I'll try one. I like this poem of yours that capturs the feeling of working on a poem!


Thanks for visiting!
