This work has reached the exceptional level

The poet's art, it seems to me,

is weaving words. To change the world,

he crafts a cloth, where all can see

the poet's art. It seems to me

he can unlock the mystery

in life, and love, and laughter furled.

The poet's art, it seems to me,

is weaving words to change the world.

The more triolets I read, the more I realise the importance of getting extra value out of those repeating lines by altering their meaning. This can be done by way of enjambment and varying punctuation. I hope that's what I've achieved here.

A comment by a reviewer got me to examine more closely the words in the artwork. Guess what? They are the lyrics to the 1980s hit song ' Words' by F. R. David
Words, don't come easy to me / How can I find a way to make you see I Love You / Words don't come easy...

Not really a good motto for any aspiring poet!
