d’Verse Quadrille #168- Dark Ice

That brings me to our quadrille word. Ice, ice, baby!
Remember your quadrille must be exactly 44 words, not counting the title and must include ice or a form of the word.




DARK ICE

Most treacherous slopes brandish dark ice
When naivete opens a door
There’s peril in just being nice
Most treacherous slopes brandish dark ice
Heed this scarred warrior’s advice
Learn from my tragic ‘before’
Most treacherous slopes brandish dark ice
When naivete opens a door



44-words
Form of a Triolet

  1. You made the triolet form the perfect vehicle for this striking warning, Susan. Makes you wonder what the “scarred warrior’s” backstory is.

  2. Oh that dark ice is always sneaky, catching one off guard. The repetition worked so well in this triolet, intensifying the warning. Love it.

Tell me something good...
