Field of Blooms

Tried writing a Rondelet for the first time.
Ronovan has all the details πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

He explains the rules in a simple way as below.

There are seven lines.
One line appears three times. In lines 1, 3, and 7.

Keep that in mind, because those lines need to make sense throughout the poem. It’s easier than you think. These are what are called refrains (repeats).

RHYME PATTERN:AbAabbA
SYLLABLE PATTERN:Β 4/8/4/8/8/8/4

Line 1: Aβ€”four syllables                A rhyme
Line 2: bβ€”eight syllables               B rhyme
Line 3: Aβ€”repeat of line one         A rhyme
Line 4: aβ€”eight syllables                A rhyme (I know it’s a small a, but it’s still an a.)
Line 5: bβ€”eight syllables                B rhyme
Line 6: bβ€”eight syllables                 B rhyme
Line 7: Aβ€”repeat of line one           A rhyme

TIP: Of course write line A first, but then go ahead and put it down two more times. space them out. Put a space between lines 1 and 3. Then skip three lines between 3 and 7. Sounds weird, but it helps. You practically have half the poem done with one line.

Field full of blooms
Winds whisper syllables of love
Field full of blooms
Flowers speaking language of wombs
Come bees and butterflies to trove
Burgeoning life with velvet gloves
Field full of blooms
