Reminiscing about glory days.
In glory day it was the case
that steadiness was more in place,
and days uplifted me with light—
I will admit to better sight
as I maintained a steady pace.

A brighter glow was on my face
and there appeared less empty space
as true fulfillment beamed so bright
in glory days.

As I look back I long to race—
to those old days I could give chase
and yet they’re merely dreams at night,
perhaps a moment of delight,
but now I’d simply be off base
in glory days.

(The rondeau is composed of fifteen lines, eight to ten syllables each, divided stanzaically into a quintet, a quatrain,
and a sestet. The refrain consists of the first few words or the entire first line of the first stanza, and it recurs as the
last line of both the second and third stanzas. Two rhymes guide the music of the rondeau, whose rhyme scheme
is as follows (R representing the refrain): aabba aabR aabbaR.)
