When days grow longer

When days grow longer moon turns pale
And winter fades as sun turns brighter.
At dawn the bay is pink with sails.
When days grow longer moon turns pale
The break of day inspires writers
When days grow longer moon turns pale
And winter fades as sun turns brighter.

Today Grace Hosts OLN at dVerse, any poem goes, and for me it’s fun to do a triolet. Great form, and a long time since I did. I varied the tetrameter slightly by ending every second line with a trochee instead of iamb. Come join us with any poem when bar opens at 9 CET.

  1. I like the inclusion of a few feminine rhymes (rhyming words that end with unaccented syllables). Allows for a less “sing-song” quality which is nice once in a while! 🙂 Also enjoying the fact that the days ARE growing longer!

  2. Trochees sound hard to chew & swallow, brother–sweet triolet though–Spring seems so far off to me though.

  3. The changing of the seasons is always important when each season is a challenge in itself you look forward to the change as I am today thinking winter can’t come fast enough…

  4. Your triolet is very melodic. I loved the image of a harbor dotted in pink sails and the line about the birth of light of day inspiring writers.

  5. Not familiar with the form….that is the case for me for so many.
    Love the refrain and it all goes beautifully with the artwork!
    LATE to reading….shall not get to all of Thursdays before Quadrille starts 😦

I love your feedback
