My First Troilet


Cynthia (Epiphany: Amour Habito Intus Vos) actually inspired me to try a troilet
She did such a lovely one on her blog.



Pearled in moonlight
Two bodies lay entwined
Cradled in velvet starry night
Pearled in moonlight

Lovers swallowed in searing passion bright
As honeyed tongues let slip promises divine
Pearled in moonlight
Two bodies lay entwined

This one writhes and twists. "Pearled in moonlight" is such a beautiful line. Do you find formal verse difficult? This is so well done.

your triolet is so lovely and romantic, a delicate sensuality
that flows.

My favorite:

"As honeyed tongues let slip promises divine"

I cannot properly, (or publicly), express the inner secrets this brings to the surface my heart.

Simply breathtaking!

I may just try a Troilet myself!

I find troilets difficult, but I keep trying. Yours has a dainty feeling to it - very nice!

breathless for an Ophelia triolet,
to add to my collection, dear.
