Birds At Winter Nightfall (Triolet)

Around the house the flakes fly faster,
And all the berries now are gone
From holly and cotoneaster
Around the house. The flakes fly!--faster
Shutting indoors that crumb-outcaster
We used to see upon the lawn
Around the house. The flakes fly faster,
And all the berries now are gone!

Around the house the flakes fly faster,   And all the berries now are gone  From holly and cotoneaster  Around the house. The flakes fly! - faster  Shutting indoors that crumb-outcaster  We used to see upon the lawn  Around the house. The flakes fly faster,   And all the berries now are gone! EXPLAIN
Triolets are difficult. I can think of very little I would want to repeat three times in a poem
Around the clock I read old Hardy Until the pages all are done. My dogs will call me worse than tardy around the clock. I read old Hardy Prose and poem as mind grows lardy And half my sanity is gone Around the clock. I read old Hardy Until the pages all are done.
