Humor, fun, Life Poems - Rondelet

A chapter in the book 40. Humor, Fun and Poems about Life

The week begins

by Sandra du Plessis

The week begins,
time never waits for anyone;

the week begins,
exhausted, my mind's in a spin
I find new power from the sun,
forget the strains let us have fun;

the week begins.



The Rondelet is a French form consisting of a single septet with two rhymes and one refrain: AbAabbA. The capital letters are the refrains or repeats. The refrain is written in tetra-syllabic or dimeter and the other lines are twice as long - octasyllabic or tetrameter.

Example #1:

Such Happiness

Such happiness
Has crept up on me without sound,
Such happiness
Has touched my heart with soft caress;
All life's sharp corners have gone round,
Since I've met you, my friend, I�¢??ve found
Such happiness.
