A French verse form. Its rhyme scheme is ABaAabAB and all lines are in iambic tetrameter; the first, fourth and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines, thereby making the initial and final couplets identical as well. The features of the Triolet are: 8 lines. Two rhymes. 5 of the 8 lines are repeated or refrain lines. First line repeats at the 4th and 7th lines. Second line repeats at the 8th line.

Nurses are extraordinarily kind, dispensing hope and endless compassion. Friendly caregivers and angels combined, nurses are extraordinarily kind. The paradigm of graciousness defined, they smile, when smiling seems out of fashion. Nurses are extraordinarily kind, dispensing hope and endless compassion.
