Today’s poetry form is called Rondelet Poetry. From Brewer,
Lines 1, 3, and 7 are refrains
Refrain lines are 4 syllables long, other lines are 8 syllables
Rhyme scheme: AbAabbA
Churn with Butterflies
my innards churn with butterflies
wanting to blame society
fear dressed up; a clever disguise
this is hellish, all of me cries

I am on a personal challenge to explore and write in 100+ different poetic forms. To assist me in this journey is Robert Lee Brewer’s The Complete Guide of Poetic Forms where he gives the form and an example. Churn with Butterflies is #42 in this collection I’m calling, very simply, 100+ Poetic Forms.
