Bandit’s Soft Spot

E’er gently have I laid it there,
So soft caressing folds would call to thee.
‘Tis art undone but frames your Blenheim hair,
E’er gently have I laid it there,
for you to gather, coiled, your coat so fair,
These knitted stitches soon your bed shall be!
E’er gently have I laid it there,
So soft caressing folds would call to thee.

The photo of my over anxious puppy, securing his favorite spot atop my ‘work-in-progress’, knitted afghan, seems a perfect response to today’s Photo Friday prompt: Soft.  

This is my first attempt at a Triolet form of poetry, which is a short, eight-line poem, with only two rhyme schemes used throughout. The first line is repeated as the fourth and seventh and the second line repeated as the last.

    This form is intriguing, Joanne– all the more because it hasn’t had a lot of use in English. I read up on it at Academy of American Poets and about.com. I like it especially because it lends itself to lighter themes (as you do adroitly here) as well as to the somber (Thomas Hardy has a couple). Nicely done!
