Alankar (Decor) -32 - Poem by Indira Renganathan

Chase (Rondeau Redoubled)
Rondeau Redoubled is not simply doubling the Rondeau. Instead of a rentrament at the end of each stanza, the rentrament appears only at the end of the poem and the 1st 4 lines of the poem become refrains sequentially placed at the end of each stanza.
The Rondeau Redoubled is:
a poem in 25 lines, made up of 6 quatrains, the last quatrain has a tail. The rentrement,1st phrase of the 1st line of the poem is repeated as the tail, the 25th or last line of the poem.
metric, iambic pentameter.
rhymed, rhyme scheme A1B1A2B2 babA1 abaB1 babA2 abaB2 babaR R being the rentrement.
The 1st 4 lines of the poem become sequentially a refrain that is repeated as the last line of sequential quatrains.
The rentrement or 1st phrase of the poem is repeated as the last line (25th) of the poem.


Chase


I won't let you go out o' little mouse
Shall see to it once and all for today
You run run-I run run-round round the house
But I win, you're caught and lost just today

Here I keep the trap to trap and dismay
Sugared magic sure you're fooled o'poor mouse
Cunning you think? brainy you think? ..today
I won't let you go out o' little mouse

Fought, caught, taught to rot petty petty mouse
Bitter squeaks, what a pest, what a hell, hey
Snouty mouse, messy beast, out from this house
Shall see to it once and all for today

May foe feline be fed on you today
Be hooked and thrown-that I shall venge you mouse
Ha, ha, ha then shall all end just today
You run run-I run run-round round the house

No reason, no season, no taste o' mouse
krrkk, krrkk-nibbling all things, all time whole day
Like thief hides to steal you do in my house
But I win, you're caught and lost just today

Here is the trap for your best goal today
Slip in soundless for the 'masaal' o'mouse
I'm sure you will tempted fall but at bay
Thrown awed be mashed by feline out the house
I won't let you
