Child is father to the man in rainbow,
When the heart beholds it in the sky.
How can that be ,wonders other poet
And the lines turn violet in his triolet.

In the second one of his triolets’ trio
The Cockles pills provide comic relief
Those world famous anti-bilious pills.
Beware of fakes warming  the cockles.

For three hours, you plough through
The times to see what  neighbor says
No news  is in the times today is true.
Child is grandfather with the rainbow.

(About a less widely known trio of Triolets by Gerard Manley Hopkins written probably in jest or as an experimental verse form)
