|The triolet is a poetic form that dates to the 13th century in France. It consists of a stanza of eight lines that include two rhymes and two refrains. Its name comes from the fact that the first line of the poem is used three times (lines 1, 4, and 7). The second line is used twice (lines 2 and 8), and the rhyme scheme is ABAA ABAB.
A triolet is fun to write;
It's Saturnalia in Rome.
