What is a Tercet?

April is set aside as National Poetry Month to celebrate poets and poetry. The Academy of American Poets and other  poetry organizations schedule events this month. 

For more information visit: National Poetry Month.

My third poetry style is a Tercet (plural Tercets).

ter·cet /ˈtersət(noun)
  1. a set or group of three lines of verse rhyming together or connected by rhyme with an adjacent tercet. Example of three-line poem rhyming AAA; and Percy Bysshe Shelley’s “Ode to the West Wind” OR unrhyme three lines. Examples of poems in unrhymed tercets include Wallace Stevens’s “The Snow Man”

Spring Tercet
 By Maritza M. Mejia@2015

Cold, balmy, warm, hot

What kind of day do we have?

Tell me gentle wind!

  For this month readings, I present to you my Award Poetry Book:

Happy Poetry Month!
