A triolet is a poem of eight lines with the rhyme scheme ABaAabAB The first, fourth and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines, thereby making the initial and final couplets identical as well.

Brilliant! In fact, I just uploaded a ‘Triolet’ of my own onto my blog. It’s linked below. I’d love it if you would have a look over it and leave me some tips on how to improve. I’m sure I could learn a lot from you. I hope you like it!
