Dancing Waters

Fountain - Apartments

Dancing Water(A Triolet) .

.

Dancing water on clear display

In a pure pool of cobalt blue,

That ripples up, streaming spray.

Dancing water on clear display

In delightful cascade array,

It enhances a garden’s view.

Dancing water on clear display,

In a pure pool of cobalt blue.

Author Notes This fountain is actually in a garden of an condominium complex along the Mississippi River at the Upper Landing area of St. Paul.


This poem is a Triolet.

A Triolet is a poem with a fixed format. This one has a syllable structure of 8 counts or tetrameter. It is a poem of only eight lines with a rhyme scheme of only two rhymes (a and b) that can be represented as follows: ABaAabAB, where the fourth and seventh lines are the same exact line as the first. The eighth line is the same exact line as the second (This is represented by the capital letters shown). So, it is very important to compose the first two lines carefully so that the entire poem flows well and is enhanced by the repeats.
