1. Triolet

If you haven’t checked the (rather concise) About page, basically what I plan on doing is to create a collection of poetry using every single poetic form that has ever been conceived by the human mind, however simple or however difficult. Today, I decided to start out with something easy. A triolet.

It’s basically a single stanza poem of eight lines with the ABaAabAB rhyme scheme, with the first, fourth, and seventh lines identical, as well as the second and eighth.

This is rather easy to do, and I find that the repetition of lines adds some flair to it.

Always Has Been

It is he, for it always has been he.
Never had I thought it would be true—
Never, never in all my reverie.
It is he, for it always has been he.
To be so simple-minded as can be,
To think it a lie and to misconstrue.
It is he, for it always has been he.
Never had I thought it would be true.
