Author’s Note: This is my first Triolet. A Triolet has only 8 lines. “Within a Triolet, the 1st, 4th, and 7th lines repeat, and the 2nd and 8th lines do as well. The rhyme scheme is simple: ABaAabAB, capital letters representing the repeated lines” (Shadowpoetry.com). You can write a Triolet in iambic tetrameter (8 syllables per line), as is traditional, or iambic pentameter (10 syllables per line). Grammar: I looked up ‘lay vs lie’ when I was writing this poem. We use the word ‘lay’ to put or place something with a direct object: I laid the book on the table. ‘Lie’ is to recline: Lie down! He went to lie down. However, the past tense of lie is lay. I am meaning this poem to describe something in the past. I hope I did it right. If not, please let me know!
