Day 2 ~ Let's write a Triplet

How to write a Triplet Poem ~

Triplets are 3 lined poems that rhyme:

BUT ~ HERE’S THE IMPORTANT PART ~
EVERY LINE HAS THE SAME NUMBER OF SYLLABLES!

Fun times ~ it helps to think of a topic first, any topic (nature is usually the easiest to get an idea about).

Here’s an example (count out the syllables and you’ll see each line has the same number) by Sally Clark, found in “The Highlights of Homeschooling: How to Write 30 Forms of Poetry about Horses”

Through the waving grass we glide,
through the morning mist we ride,
galloping the prairie wide.

Here’s my efforts:

We’ve been together forty years,
through laughter, joys, and all the tears,
now, only you, can calm my fears.

I pray my words today are sweet,
in case there’s some I have to eat,
it makes friends easier to keep!

Day 2-Attempt 2
My husband supports me in all I do
Through thick and thin and good times too
Know sweetheart that I love you.

The house is quiet as it can be
At last some peace to think quietly
I can't wait for them to come home to me

Now I know, the trick is so clear,
let's see what I can say right here,
it's fun to try and not to fear.

Hey, this is neat and fun to do,
I guess the words are sometimes true,
now on we go to three from two.
