examples of tercets
Examples of tercets:

One Art

The art of losing isn’t hard to master,

So many things seem filled with the intent

To be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster

Of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.

The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster,

Places , and names and where it was you meant

To travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother’s watch. And look! My last, or

Next-to-last, of three loved houses went.

The art of losing isn’t hard to master

I lost two cities, lovely one. And, vaster,

Some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.

I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster.

--Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture

I love) I shan’t have lied. It’s evident

The art of losing’s not too hard to master

Though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

Villanelle:

  • Haiku:

I would lie down drunk

on a bed of stone covered

with soft pinks blooming.

No title, by Damon McLaughlin

  • Normal tercet:
  • I am a yellow dog
  • who wishes he was
  • a purple-spotted frog.
  • No title, by Damon McLaughlin
my own tercet
My own tercet:

Slowly the leaves fall

On the dampened, earthy ground

Winter is coming.
