Triolet: Hell or high water

Taking up my own challenge with this rather gloomy number.

Julian_Onderdonk_(1882-1922)_-_Dawn_In_The_Hills_(1922)

Come hell or high water, still I wait,

Though dawn breaks slow upon these lonely hills,

When this night dies it may well be too late.

Come hell or high water, still I wait,

Where lingering shadows drift before the gate,

And no light from the morning sun yet spills.

Come, hell or high water, still I wait,

Though dawn breaks slow upon these lonely hills.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
