Chapter 1 of the book Seasonal Poems
Seasonal - Rondelet
"A Great New Year" by Sandra du Plessis
Background
A collection of poems covering all seasonal events, from natural seasons to festive seasons throughout the year

A great New Year
for one and all to find their place
a great New Year
Let's fill each day with joy and cheer
seek dreams to follow worth the chase
keep loved ones close in your embrace
a great New Year

The book continues with Valentine's day - 2017. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes
Rondelet

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, Iâ??ve found
Such happiness.
