A Birthday Poem
"For Brooke (adewpearl)" by mountainwriter49
For Brooke (adewpearl)
On the Occasion of Her 65th Birthday
Significantly Modified Triolet


Oh, how I miss your witty verse
about the fairies sprinkling dust
upon our eyes, enhancing verve.
Oh how I miss your lovely verse
that sang and filled my heart with mirth.
In this you can forever trust,
the magic fairies sprinkling dust.
Oh how I miss your wondrous verse.


10 May 2016


The book continues with Thus Bending Light. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
This poem follows the outline of the Triolet; however, in the spirit of Brooke, I have modified it as follows:

The normal rhyme pattern is ABaAabAB, with the capital letters being repeating lines. I have modified the rhyme pattern to be ABaAabBA, or reversing the last two lines. Also, in the spirit of offering more descriptions about Brooke's (adewpearl) poetry, I've modified the A repeating line's A word 'witty' to be 'lovely' and 'wondrous' in the two repeating A lines; respectively. I modified the B repeating line by changing 'about the fairies' to read as 'the magic fairies'. I pray the Triolet gods will forgive me for these modifications--I already know Brooke has. :-)

I have also used approximate rhymes for pairings with 'verse.'

Today, 10 May, is Brooke Baldwin's 65th birthday. This is a little poem of remembrance and celebration for her. Please join me in wishing Brooke a happy birthday.
