A Rondel is a French form consisting of 13 lines: two quatrains and a quintet, rhyming as follows: ABba abAB abbaA. The capital letters are the refrains, or repeats.
The first time I met you I knew,
I would be foolish to fall in love
Although your hand fit mine like a glove
There wasn’t room in your life for two.
As time went by, my feelings grew,
but I hid them in shadows thereof.
The first time I met you I knew
I would be foolish to fall in love.
Once as I gazed into your eyes of blue,
I prayed to the Heavens above
that you’d never guess, even an inkling of
the tenderest feelings I’d hidden from you.
The first time I met you I knew.
