See, where my book-mark lands me on the net
Twixt balladeer and chatty poetry-lover
Pantoums I find there - how is this form set?
That's the mad poet; he writes each line twice over,
Because the fool so terribly is smitten
With each bad line he's written

Perhaps I better explain, the original (written by Robert Browning) goes thus:

Hark, where my blossom'd pear-tree in the hedge
Leans to the field and scatters on the clover
Blossoms and dewdrops - at the bent spray's edge -
That's the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over,
Lest you should think he never could recapture
The first, fine careless rapture.
