My Wife, In Love And Caring - Poem by Lynn W. Petty



Those deep etched lines upon her face
Have been incised by love and caring.
I touch her cheek, my fingers trace
Those deep etched lines upon her face,
Which manifest her selfless grace;
Her gift of years. I stand declaring,
Those deep etched lines upon her face
Have been incised by love and caring.

    i don't 'know' triolet. i did know a Violet. no, she was a Fern, come to think of it.
    i don't think i care for triolet form, but i suppose you produced it faithfully.
