A wild voice rises in the wind tonight

It’s Open Link Night at dverse, so I’ve written a triolet inspired by guess who.

 

A wild voice rises in the wind tonight,

A message soars on sweet-strung wings

Of feathered grey and snowy white.

A wild voice rises in the wind tonight,

As blue clouds scud through the silvery light.

No longer dark, the bright star sings—

A wild voice rises. In the wind tonight,

A message soars on sweet-strung wings.

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.

  1. What a wonderfully enchanting triolet, Jane!❤️ Especially love; “As blue clouds scud through the silvery light.” *swoon*❤️

    1. Thanks Mary 🙂 It does have a good sound because of the repetitions. I enjoy trying to give each repetition a slightly different meaning. It doesn’t always work, but when it does, you can see why the triolet was invented 🙂
