Le Triolet Et La Rondelet - Poem by Diane Hine

I think we’ll need a tourniquet
to stem the weeping wounds of Schmaltz.
He’s fading Madame Rondelet;
I think we’ll need a tourniquet.
Vers Libre scribbles epithets
extolling improvised assaults!
I think we’ll need a tourniquet
to stem the weeping wounds of Schmaltz.


We’ll raise him yet
dear Triolet but first – a waltz!
We’ll raise him yet;
I’ve found a length of winceyette.
We’ll bind the gushes, splint the faults
and bring him round with smelling salts;
we’ll raise him yet!

    Wonderful and ingenuous write, A style of poetry rarely seen on here. If it is your mission to write each poem in every single form knowing to all of human culture I salute you. Now I must look up the word winceyette. (Report) Reply
