Balladeer,
Ty, most erudite editor of erroneous meter.
For a most excellent edifying example of nose kazoo, might I suggest "Lather" by the Jefferson Airplane?

Alison, Dr. Moose picked one of them. The other is..

Itís hidden with pain out of sight

it's HID-den with PAIN OUT of SIGHT

Two unaccented syllables together (-den with)
Two accented syllables together   (pain out)

The two you suggested were fine.

K....so here's a second go at it:

Today is painful I must say
The pain in my backís here to stay
I want to go to my small home
I want to go rest in my room
To sleep away this painful day

My boss tells me that I must stay
For me to leave there is no way
I still have two hours and some
Today is painfulÖ

All I want is to go and lay
In my bed and sleep through the day
In my comfy master bedroom
There is no time that is too soon
Today is painfulÖ

At least you don't give  up, Arana. I'll look forward to your third attempt...or dissect this one, if you like.

Well, I just spent the evening writing a Rondeau. I hope that I didn't break any commandments or commit too many sins ~ but my intentions are pure!

While Iím Asleep

While Iím asleep, sweet dreams I weave.
~ Drift off to lands of Make Believe.
I sail across the starlit skies,
Until the morn when I arise.
Iím wrapped in dreams each summerís eve.

I carry fairies on my sleeve.
They hang on tight and dare not leave.
I see the wonder in their eyes.
~ While Iím asleep.

The countless blessings I receive,
From distant travels I perceive,
Have led me to a paradise,
Where all is pure and all are wise.
As I aspire ~ I will achieve.
~ While Iím asleep.

Sibling Complexity


Love does not end when sisters fight
It grows from pain, then hides from sight
As dried up laughter fills the cracks
From bitter words that werenít held back
And endless pride trumps over right.

A sister's love is tangled tight
By tattered thoughts prone to ignite
From heated words - restraint they lack.
    Love does not end Ö

The feelings weave with subtle might
They spring from dreams that fill the night
To hush the cries and dry tear tracks
To heal the wounds from each attack
Then pain will dim as hope grows bright.
    Love does not end Ö

No, Dear Alison, "Love does not end" over a simple case of sibling rivalry. I have a sister and the love stays strong even when things have gone wrong.

I really rike your rondeau, Rhonda! (I like using alliteration so please forgive me.)

Thank you, Linda.  My oldest sister and I rarely fight - so our recent falling out has hurt us both.  When this one gets the green light, I am sending it on to her.

I love you.

Alison, I'm sure that it will get the "Green Light" and that it will go far in healing the rift between you and your sister. "Love does not end".

Love you too,

OWWW! ( holding hands on posterior ) It appears I've been kicked all the way back here from open #45 to await correction for pawning off a "counterfeit" Rondeau.

Green light given, Alison. It's well-written and makes your point and message very clear. You go, girl!

Oh, Deer! Is my Rondeau so poorly written that you can't Bear to look at it? Linda quietly slips away and sheds a tear...

My mistake, Moose. I did you an injustice. No, you are not forgiven for the counterfeit
but, at first reading, I though the doc had lost his marbles - and his meter. Sentences  began with iamb, trochees, anapests, and I had a hard time following any rythym. For a mortal this would have been forgivable, but for such a champion of meter as you, I attributed it to either Johnny Walker of Jim Beam.

Then, after two valiums and a percocet, I reasoned that there must be a different answer. MIchaelangelo does not simply begin painting stick figures...so I studied it again and realized that, by beginning each line with an anapest, everything fell into place and all was right in the world.

Balance has been restored to the universe and you have my apology for my short-sightedness.

Sorry, Linda. Alison got me side-tracked with her horny angelness and I lost my train of thought.

Not one criticism can I make, miss. The form is perfect, as is the dreamy picture you paint of you mind traveling as you sleep is first-rate. You have it down well!

I'm pleased that you're pleased! I have always wanted to make my teachers happy!

Balladeer,
Pip, pip, right-o, oh merciless master of metaphor, anapestic it was, although it didn't lend itself easily to this form.
Wonderful to see that your sense of humor has been restored ( along with universal balance )lol. I'd watch the encapsulated cocktails if I was you though, too much of a good thing yanno.

I love the Rondeau ~ so much so, that I have written another one! ~ and to think I used to balk at the idea of structuring my poetic thoughts!

In Shangri-La

In Shangri-La the rivers flow,
With milk and honey ~ smooth and slow.
The skies are clear and sapphire blue,
Each flower is of rainbow hue.
Caressing zephyrs softly blow.

The stars at night set it aglow.
Itís heaven down on Earth below,
~ Where all is young and in renew.
     ~ In Shangri-La

A dreamscape, where I long to go.
~ But where it is, I do not know.
It is not legend. It is true,
For I have seen it in full view,
~ When I was there so long ago.
     ~ In Shangri-La.

Well, Angel, there's no doubt you're the queen of La-La Land!

This one is ideal...very nicely done. it's refreshing to know there is no do-do in Shangri-La. Sounds like paradise to me!

Thanks, Teach!

You can trust the word of an 'angel' ~ Shangri-La IS Paradise! ~ Now, if only I can find it again!

Hi, Teach!

I'm baaack! With my third Rondeau! I agree with you that this is an incredibly beautiful form of poetry! ~ When it is done well! ~ Which I'm hoping that I have managed to do! I await your verdict!

In Camelot

In Camelot, I dream of knight,  
Whose kisses make my heart take flight.  
So rapt am I, I cannot speak,  
I tremble and my knees grow weak,  
~ When he appears on steed of white.  

His words of charm are sheer delight.  
I feel a spark ~ within, ignite.  
With gentle touch, he strokes my cheek.    
~ In Camelot  

He comes to me in still of night,  
The moment I turn out the light.
He doles the love for which I seek.
My dreams are sweet. ~ No longer bleak,  
As I have wished with all my might.
~ In Camelot.

LLD

Angel! You have turned into a Rondeau Rabble Rouser!! This one is great...very well done.

As soon as I turn out the light.

I think I would prefer..

The moment I turn out the light

as being smoother and more poetic...but that's just me.

May your Lancelot come riding by.....or, if you will settle for a knight in slightly tarnished armor...call me!
