A Visit To My Village(Chaucerian Roundel)
The Chaucerian Roundel is:
a decastich, made up of 2 tercets followed by a quatrain.
written in no particular line length or meter although the form is often written in lines of equal length. Iambic tetrameter or pentameter lines are common.
rhymed Abb abA abbA, the A is a refrain.
composed with a refrain; L1 is repeated as a refrain in L6 and L10.


Till my last ken it was green, green alone
Looked just for God's tread carpeted sacred
Or an attire godly live emerald

Much a velvet thought even now I'm prone
To feel the heaven for me descended
Till my last ken it was green, green alone

Such be, changing are not people alone
Even the paddy fields to houses changed
Last trip here to say there were all paved
'Till my last ken it was green, green alone'
