Let's discuss poetry, With the theme of fantasy.
This week is the last of the poetry forms we will be exploring.
A Rondeau is a French form, 15 lines long, consisting of three stanzas: a quintet, a quatrain, and a sestet with a rhyme scheme as follows: aabba aabR aabbaR. Lines 9 and 15 are short - a refrain (R) consisting of a phrase taken from line one. The other lines are longer (but all of the same metrical length).
Here are a few of my examples of the Rondeau form...
