20. Lee Ann Brown reads ‘A Double Triolet’, written with Lisa Jarnot at “The Spirit of Black Mountain College”, a 75th anniversary celebration held September 25-27, 2008 at Lenoir-Rhyne University and the Hickory Museum of Art. Ths reading was part of “Remembering Jonathan Williams (1929-2008): A Tribute” honoring one of the original Black Mountain poets.
The triolet is a short poem of eight lines with only two rhymes used throughout. The requirements of this fixed form are straightforward: the first line is repeated in the fourth and seventh lines; the second line is repeated in the final line; and only the first two end-words are used to complete the tight rhyme scheme. Thus, the poet writes only five original lines, giving the triolet a deceptively simple appearance: ABaAabAB, where capital letters indicate repeated lines.
