GloPoWriMo #4 Casting to the Empty Sea

Casting to the empty sea,
the tangled net of broken wave.
When we think we’ve got something
casting to the empty sea,
wild tide plays no symphony; 
ancient myth of mermaid stave
casting to the empty sea,
the tangled net of broken wave.

GloPoWriMo #4 Today, let’s try writing triolets. A triolet is an eight-line poem. All the lines are in iambic tetramenter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines. This means that the poem begins and ends with the same couplet. Beyond this, there is a tight rhyme scheme (helped along by the repetition of lines) — ABaAabAB.
