Triplets or Three Line Stanzas

  1. The dawn was apple green.

    The sky was green wine held up in the sun.

    The moon was a golden petal between.

    They shone, clear, like flowers undone

    For the first time, now for the last time seen.

By Louis Untermeyer

Whoe' er she be,

That not impossible she,

That shall command my heart and me.

By Richard Crashaw
