Music in My Life

Written for:  Poems of Garden Gnomes – Form Friday:  Rondeau

A rondeau (plural rondeaux) is a form of French poetry with 15 lines written on two rhymes. It makes use of refrains, repeated according to a certain stylized pattern. It was customarily regarded as a challenge to arrange for these refrains to contribute to the meaning of the poem in as succinct and poignant a manner as possible. The rondeau consists of thirteen lines of eight syllables, plus two refrains (which are half lines, four syllables each).

Soft jazz is perfect for writing
like setting a mood with lighting.
You can hum without distraction,
enjoying some interaction.
Your poems will sing as if gliding.

Music can be so exciting,
singing along so inviting.
Blues hold a spellbound attraction
music in life

If you’re out with your love dining,
and it’s champagne you’re imbibing,
in candlelight, feel reaction
to classical music’s passion.
See it as a silver lining.
music in life

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
