Rondeau

Drifting Snow

by Sugarray77

As snow drifts down through frosty air,
I'm nestled in my easy chair,
   I watch fat flakes through frosted glass
   I'm mesmerized ~ slow hours pass
An ethereal, white love affair

Remembering my childhood where,
we threw snowballs with zeal and flair,
   dear memories return en masse
as snow drifts down.

Soft twilight dims earth's subtle glare;
reminding me to be aware
   that time is flitting by.. alas,
   aged sand sifts through my hourglass;
each moment is unique and rare...
as snow drifts down.

A Rondeau poetic form is a three stanza verse written in iambic tetrameter with a repeating refrain taken from the first line... usually a four syllable refrain. The three sections are broken up into 5 lines in the first stanza, 4 in the second, and 6 in the third. There are two end rhymes in a rondeau... and the rhyme scheme is aabba. aabR. aabbaR (R stands for refrain)
