Happy Easter!

Easter Sunday on empty church
We still celebrate it at home
We find peace and hope if we search
Easter Sunday on empty church
High up in the tree the bird perched
It is best for us not to roam
Easter Sunday on empty church
We still celebrate it at home*

* A Triolet is a poetic form consisting of only 8 lines. Within a Triolet, the 1st, 4th, and 7th lines repeat, and the 2nd and 8th lines do as well. The rhyme scheme is simple: ABaAabAB, capital letters representing the repeated lines.

Make writing a Triolet more challenging! Make each line 8 syllables in length (4 metrical feet), written in iambic tetrameter (the more common way), or try it in pentameter (English version) where each line only has 10 syllables (5 metrical feet).

For: twelfth day of Na/GloPoWriMo
