Around the Maypole

Spring bows to thrill of cayenne summer, dreams spiced in youthful glow come May. Bright ribbons wake my bare feet’s slumber. Spring bows to thrill of cayenne summer! Rainbows pleat dance, no clouds encumber my twirling limbs, life's weaved sashay. Spring bows to thrill of cayenne summer, dreams spiced in youthful glow come May! Spring sighs with age come broaching summer, blue tears, red smiles ‘round pole in May. Life's colors flow from gold to umber. Spring sighs with age come broaching summer! And shall I join wind’s lively number or watch bright ribbons twist and play? Spring sighs with age come broaching summer, blue tears, red smiles ‘round pole in May! written 2/5/15

Rhonda, I rarely say this to people, but THIS is how a triolet should be done!!! It's perfection because it is not only well rhymed and metered, it is also has very clever lines and unique imagery! a fave. for being one of the very best I have seen in this contest.
