Terza Rima Poetry

(“Invented by the Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the late thirteenth century to structure his three-part epic poem, The Divine Comedy, terza rima is composed of tercets woven into a rhyme scheme that requires the end-word of the second line in one tercet to supply the rhyme for the first and third lines in the following tercet. Thus, the rhyme scheme [aba, bcb, cdc, ded] continues through to the final stanza or line.”) (source)

(So, lots of rhyming…fun!)

Does Winter Never End?

Snow doesn’t mean to be any trouble

It falls quietly to not be a bother

And yet we still complain and grumble


We are happy to see the snow when the Christmas Father

Drops his presents beneath our trees

And we give allowances for cold weather


But what happens when Christmas flees

And the winter and snow still remains

And the only thing we can do is sit and drink our tea?

(Can you tell I’m sick of winter? Up in Minnesota, we just got a foot of snow yesterday…in April. So I’m a bit cabin sick, but I have my tea!)
