Viva la Poets, One & Many Tritina Song
Will this be my tritina song?
No reason it should not work.
Rhythm & rhyme, song in good voice.
The melody, the thought, the chord, the voice,
By the end of the day, a poem a song.
A practice, a praise to all poets’ work.
In the new world, the old world, they work,
Geography and accent, a planets’ voice.
Elation as one, then all, join with the poets in song.
Man as beast work, birds sing, small voice in song.

Our (optional) prompt for Day Seven comes to us from Gloria Gonsalves, who challenges us all to write a tritina. The tritina is a shorter cousin to the sestina, involving three, three-line stanzas, and a final concluding line. Three “end words” are used to conclude the lines of each stanza, in a set pattern of ABC, CAB, BCA, and all three end words appear together in the final line.
p.s. “late” but sometimes I want to cry when it happens. love to all my fellow poets.
