Poetry Friday: “September Song”

poetryfridaybutton-fulllToday I’m sharing a triolet I originally wrote about a year and a half ago, but which has gone through so many revisions I’ve lost count. Hope you enjoy it! Be sure to stop by Jama’s Alphabet Soup for all of today’s Poetry Friday links (and button candy!).

September Song

The autumn wind is growing colder.
As all the hills are set ablaze
a shiver stirs my neck and shoulder –
the autumn wind is growing colder.
These woods and I, just one month older,
yearn for summer’s sun-drenched days.
The autumn wind is growing colder
as all the hills are set ablaze.

  1. “triolet”–thanks to you, that’s an intriguingly new poem form to play with–or as I’m watching the Jets, to “tackle.” Thanks for introducing…I like your camaraderie/identification with the woods, both being one month older. God bless you.


      1. Thanks for the condolences, though I wish I were offering them to you! …I definitely will put a “triolet” into my poetry playbook–perhaps as an option:) God bless you! THANKS!

    Triolet is one of my favorite forms. I love the way that it makes a box — a little gift — out of the poem. My favorite line is: “These woods and I, just one month older,”
