I Send You My Kiss Through The Post – A Triolet

atonement letter

A Triolet is a poetic form consisting of only 8 lines. Within a Triolet, the 1st, 4th, and 7th lines repeat, and the 2nd and 8th lines do as well. The rhyme scheme is simple: ABaAabAB, capital letters representing the repeated lines.

I send you my kiss through the post
Hope it gets there to give you cheer
Quite tough being on coast to coast
I send you my kiss through the post
When we meet we will have a toast
And we just have to persevere
I send you my kiss through the post
Hope it gets there to give you cheer

Everything changes
When I saw that folded sheet
Some truths dawn on me
That life is short and make it count
Choose our priorities well

Be optimistic
That’s a good start for the change
And be lovable
Love’s all around us, take part
Life is superb, treat it well
