Trust – A Rondelet

I missed another Form For All at dVerse Poets Pub while I was taking a blogging break, but the great thing about blogs is you can always read older posts, and so I didn’t really miss the lesson at all. I missed getting to link my poem to that particular post’s Mr. Linky, but I can still try the new form I learned. This time it’s the rondelet and the lesson was offered by Tony Maude. A rondelet is a 7-line poem with lines 1, 3, and 7 being a repeated refrain, much like my favorite triolet. Expanding on the theme of my essay earlier this week I decided to write a poem in this form about trust. I modified the third repetition of the refrain just slightly, but otherwise tried to keep true to the form.


Can trust be found
midst deceitful everyday men?
Can trust be found
in the people I see around?
But if I choose to trust again,
suffer hurt, I’ll trust God and then
trust can be found.

  1. Excellent, Linda! I’m glad you went back and did a Rondelet from that trust post! It brings it to light all the more! God bless you!


  2. …for me trust is something you achieve for being true & honest to yourself & to the world…

    …it is something you reward to a very few who proved worthy for being true & honest to the world & to themselves…
