She weaves a dress upon the loom,
her neighbors knowing it's a shroud,
window dressing for a tomb -
she weaves a dress upon the loom.
Forbidden fruit has scarred the womb,
a stranger's face amidst the crowd,
she weaves a dress upon the loom -
her neighbors knowing it's a shroud.
For the DFC :iconkiwi-damnation:

This poem is a triolet.

Very much a fan,
Triolets do not get as much love as they should

Thanks very much! I do not do much fixed form poetry and I deeply admire those who do. It takes a lot of discipline and creativity!

No problem and I agree fixed form does take an awful lot of work. Dorthy Parker has some very nice triolets in her anthologies though.

Very well done - it gives you very much sense the of weaving..
And shroud happens to be one of my favourite words :)

It makes me think of "The Lady of Shallott" and of "Strange Fruit". Not because of the content, but because of the shroud and loom and the fruit metaphor. The three pieces of work are very unrelated, but the keywords make me think of them.
