upon verdure with outstretched limbs.
sheds fresh tears for a day anew.
Caught upon threads of silky whims,
clinging to flowers’ colourful rims.

Author’s Note: 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.
