I think I’ll write a triolet With tedious repeated lines Can’t think of unique words today I think I’ll write a triolet I find them banal anyway To me their formation confines I think I’ll write a triolet With tedious repeated lines 3rd June 2016

Thanks Cheryl - I am sure there are people who like the style but I find it pretty boring - the line in Banjo's poem 'it makes bad writers somewhat worse' really made me smile:-) hugs Jan xx

I appreciate some people excel at these repetitive forms but i find a poem with 5 of the 8 lines are repeated pretty dull to be honest - I have to admit I laughed when I read the poem by Banjo Paterson especially the line it makes bad writers somewhat worse lol :-) hugs Jan xx

Right on, Jan with the triolet! Just don't have the patience for poetry forms like that. Thanks for the stop by.

I don't think they are particularly skillfully written poems 5 of 8 lines repeated - definitely will not be a fave form with me ever lol:-) hugs jan xx

you've captured exactly how i feel about this type of poem, jan (as has banjo paterson). nice one!

Thanks Ilene when I read Banjo's poem I had to agree with what he had written although i think my poem is more boring than his lol:-) hugs Jan xx

You did write a Triolet, Jan, in a rather tantalizing manner as well....... I enjoyed this

Thanks Wilfred - when I saw Banjo's witty poem about this form I had to write one too lol :-) hugs Jan xx

This is a clever take on the form. Sometimes it does become tedious to repeat lines. This is a clever take on the form. It sure does reinforce an idea. Sometimes it does become tedious to repeat lines. what a good triolet thought. this is a clever take on the form. :) :) hugs and hugs is worth repeating... hugs x

When I found the poem by Banjo Paterson I had to write a poem in agreement lol:-) I just find the repeated lines tedious but this is my opinion I know others enjoy writing them. I think this is only the second one I've written its just not a form I enjoy:-) hugs Jan xx
