Trimeric Poetry

Definition

Trimeric Poetry is a four stanza poem created by Dr Charles A Stone.

Explaination

It is a four stanza poem in which the first stanza has four lines and the last three stanzas have three lines each. The first line of the last three stanzas each repeats the corresponding line from the first stanza. (A stanza is another name for verse.)

The sequence of lines is then, abcd b -, c -, d -.

Examples

Here is an example of a Cinquain:

Summer Picnic

A gentle breeze to rustle the leaves (a)
The warm sun creating a haze (b)
Soft blanket, cool drinks, just lazing in the sun (c)
The summertime fun has just begun. (d)

The warm sun creating a haze (b)
Blue sky seemingly as far as the eye can see
Close eyes, listen to the sounds of summer.

Soft blanket, cool drinks, just lazing in the sun (c)
A field of golden buttercups
Almost as bright as the orb in the sky.

The summertime fun has just begun (d)
But grey clouds linger, heavy with rain
And all too soon it comes to an end. What a pain!
