''Rose,'' An Extended Triolet


A maid and muse, she is his Rose:
the one for whom he writes this song
which trills a note that sweetly flows.
A maid and muse, she's like a rose,
a bud of love whose flower shows
when the sun's disc is high and strong.
A maid and muse, she overflows
with Poesy which is never wrong.


Her love, which blooms from heart to heart,
becomes a song that sweetly flows
from the poet's pen like rhythmic art;
her love, which knows his soul by heart,
binds them closer when they're apart
(though heaven knows this precious Rose,
whose love goes straight to his dead heart,
is the one who uplifts his lows.).

I liked this, a masterful rendering of the Triolet; and the poem's content worked so well.
