Spring Spikes

Napowrimo 2023, Day 4

Today’s challenge is to write a triolet, an eight-line poem where all the lines are in iambic tetramenter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines. This means that the poem begins and ends with the same couplet.

 If Daffodils could inject laughter,

Would Spring spike faster in our veins?

Surely, we would all smile faster,

If Daffodils could inject laughter!

But maybe there is nothing dafter,

Than flowers that can drug our brains.

If Daffodils could inject. Laughter

would spring spike faster in our veins.
