The triolet is a short poem of eight lines with only two rhymes used throughout. The first line is repeated in the fourth and seventh lines; the second line is repeated in the final line; and only the first two end-words are used to complete the rhyme scheme.

French in origin, and likely dating to the thirteenth century, the triolet is a close cousin of the rondeau. Though some employed the triolet as a vehicle for light or humorous themes, Thomas Hardy recognized the possib...ilities for melancholy and seriousness.

'How Great My Grief'

How great my grief, my joys how few,
Since first it was my fate to know thee!
—Have the slow years not brought to view
How great my grief, my joys how few,
Not memory shaped old times anew,
Nor loving-kindness helped to show thee
How great my grief, my joys how few,
Since first it was my fate to know thee?
