Poetry Thursday #71

I thought I’d attempt something new this week, and tried to write a Triolet style poem.  Typically a triolet has 8 lines, with only two rhymes.  The first line is repeated in the fourth and seventh lines, while the second line is repeated at the end.  The rhyme scheme ends up looking like this: ABaAabAB.  I attempted two poems, and I suppose they’re not too bad – I’m going to share them anyways, let me know what you think!

I Pass The Orchard
I pass the orchard in autumn’s day,
seeing all there is to see.
With crisp winds and skies of gray,
I pass the orchard in autumn’s day
to watch the leaves slowly die away.
Grieving the life of summer’s debris,
I pass the orchard in autumn’s day,
seeing all there is to see.

Longing
Longing for grey to leave the skies,
wishing for sun to touch my face.
Awaiting the morn for the sun to rise -
longing for grey to leave the skies
and welcome soft, subtle sighs.
No rays of light to touch this place,
longing for grey to leave the skies -
wishing for sun to touch my face.
