Raging ocean, massive and mighty

provokes magnificent vigorous waves

that portend destruction; to warn.

 

As violent dark clouds bound and warn,

threatening thunders sound mighty,

lightning strikes stretching to waves.

 

Rapid raindrops fall to raise giant waves,

monstrous rash whirlwind blows that warn,

Raving birds in dreadful sky fly, so mighty.

 

The prodigy of doom; mighty waves warn!

 

 


Authors Note: The Tritina is the little brother to the Sestina. Instead of end rhymes, each stanza uses three specific unrhymed words in a specific sequence at the end of the lines. The following is the sequence in which you will use those three end-words for the first three stanzas:

ABC CAB BCA

The final stanza will use all three words in order, ABC, at the end of the line.
