For Veronica


Skating (A Triolet)

To glide across the frozen ice
and take your hand in mine once more,
just skating… being would suffice.
To glide across the frozen ice
with you in frosted paradise
our troubles melt, forget before.
To glide across the frozen ice
and take your hand in mine once more...

Beautiful! I'm really impressed by how much comfort and warmth you convey in a poem with so many cold-associated words. Wishing you and Veronica a very happy skating reunion asap.

This is charming, Ducks; the triolet form seems just right for your subject-matter. We particularly like 'frosted paradise' and 'our troubles melt'. Altogether, it is very beautiful :>)
