A Poem about a Mosquito with an MP3 Recording

Mosquitoes are on my mind since I was bitten by one today!  So I thought it would be fitting to post a poem about a mosquito…

Here’s A Mosquito Triolet by Aristine Anderson. A Triolet is an 8 line poem with a rhyme scheme of ABaAabAB.  The poem’s 1st, 4th and 7th lines are identical, as are its 2nd and 8th lines.


MP3 of A Mosquito Triolet

A Mosquito Triolet
By Aristine Anderson

He presented his bill,
And I could not evade it.
In valley, on hill,
He presented his bill,
With stinging ill-will;
So with blood, sir, I paid it.
He presented his bill,
And I could not evade it.
