An Angel Born



An angel born,


Accompanying the euphoria,


In the devout form.



When she turned three,


The jubilation fizzled out,


For she could not flawlessly see.



Conquering the impediment,


Did she work wonders with utter verve,


For she led her life with sheer contentment.



The triad is a specific form of tercet. The origins of the triad are Irish and Welsh. A triad is a poem composed of three tercets. It is a consideration of three things and their effect on a person. Welsh versions of the Arthurian legends make heavy use of this form.
