Tercet Poems

Tercets are 3 Lines of French style poetry with a-b-a rhyme patterns. There is no traditional meter required; however, many were done in tetrameter or pentameter.

Example: by Frank G. Poe, Jr.
Thanksgiving gone with the leaves of fall,
Snow packs the ground like a stuffed suitcase,
And on December 25th, “Merry Christmas to all!”
