Rising to the Challenge  by annmarwalk

A Triolet: The Weaver's Song

When the wind blows from the river, my lord will not feel the cold.
Iíll weave my love like armor, to shield him from all harm.
Iíll wrap him in velvet and sable, glorious as kings of old.
When the wind blows from the river, my lord will not feel the cold.
Valor, beauty, honor: a thousand tales will be told.
Dark velvet and black sable, my blood and tears to fix the charm.
When the wind blows from the river, my lord will not feel the cold.
Iíll weave my love like armor, to shield him from all harm.

***
