I love the weaving of the lines from stanza to stanza!
Andy Meyer

Thanks, Andy! I wrote the first stanza as my triolet for this project, but it just didn’t feel “complete.” So I thought, why not a trio of triolets? 24 lines for the price of 8! Once that became the goal, using the two “stand alone” lines from the previous stanza to start the next seemed like an easy way to ensure all three stanzas interlocked and told the same story.
