A triolet is an eight-line poem. All the lines are in iambic tetramenter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines. This means that the poem begins and ends with the same couplet. Beyond this, there is a tight rhyme scheme (helped along by the repetition of lines) — ABaAabAB. Triolets were in vogue among the Victorians
I have found a friend who is true!
We share a bond - so magical.
Who will never bid me adieu
I have found a friend; who is true.
Whose love for me is pure like dew;
'Gift of friendship' is sacred bliss.
I have found a friend, who is true.
We share a bond - so magical!
True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.
- Gentry, David Tyson
