Ivy Archway

Stone Archway

 

Ivy Archway
(Modified Triolet)
.
.

The proper path was clearly marked,

In ivy dressed on solid stone.

To destination you embarked,

The proper path was clearly marked.

Imposing when the way is arched,

And where the lovely vines have grown.

In ivy dressed on solid stone,

The proper path was clearly marked.

Author Notes

“Follow the walk to the Ivy Archway” When the path is this clear, it is easy to identify. 


This poem is a modified Triolet. A triolet is a poem of only eight lines with a rhyme scheme of:

ABaAabAB. 

The fourth and seventh lines are the same exact line as the first. The eighth line is the same exact line as the second.

However, this one is modified because I reversed the last two repeat lines. so the rhyme scheme is:

ABaAabBA


The meter is iambic tetrameter.
