Day 7 tritina poem. The tritina is a shorter cousin to the sestina, involving three, three-line stanzas, and a final concluding line. Three “end words” are used to conclude the lines of each stanza, in a set pattern of ABC, CAB, BCA, and all three end words appear together in the final line. I thought this was hard.
Canoeing down the river
Our days full of sunshine
And clear skies of blue.
Eyes of hazel, brown, and blue
As spirited as the flowing river
Kids and grand kids are my sunshine.
Without the warmth of sunshine
Flooding rains make me blue
Keeping us off the swollen river.
River days of sunshine won’t leave us cold and blue.
