Enchanting Hills:Triolet

Enchanting green hills beckon me
as if I am connected to them since eternity
sprawling, abundant beauty makes me glee
enchanting green hills beckon me
life chirps merrily wherever I see
epochs have witnessed their immortality
enchanting green hills beckon me
as if I am connected to them since eternity.
I find solace in this realm
all worldly possessions seem like mirage
their serene aura exudes calm
I find solace in this realm
wish to hold it in my palm
forever it’ll stay for eras
I find solace in this realm
all worldly possessions seem like mirage.

The triolet is a short poem of eight lines with only two rhymes used throughout. The requirements of this fixed form are straightforward: the first line is repeated in the fourth and seventh lines; the second line is repeated in the final line; and only the first two end-words are used to complete the tight rhyme scheme. ABaAabAB, where capital letters indicate repeated lines

  1. A difficult form to master, to be sure.

  2. Beautifully expressed, Vandana. I myself also very much enjoy the triolet form. Your poem speaks to the feelings of all-connectedness. I feel the same when I am out in nature, realizing that we (and everything) are all part of ONE.
