Chapter 91 of the book 37. Relationships
Relationship - Rondelet
"Some grumpy men" by Sandra du Plessis

Some grumpy men
who think the world belongs to them;
some grumpy men
just show their temper's bad again
they see themselves to be a gem
to judge and let their words condemn;
some grumpy men.


The book continues with Oldness. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.

Author Notes

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.

Example #2:

Happy Am I!

Happy am I!
For I have found a friend in you.
Happy am I!
The sun is shining in my sky.
I know that you will see me through,
No more will I be feeling blue.
Happy am I!
