The Rondelet is a brief French form of poetry. It consists of one stanza, made up of seven lines. It contains a refrain, a strict rhyme scheme and a distinct meter pattern.
The word is the diminutive of rondel, a similar, longer verse form. This is the basic structure:
Rhymed A b A a b b A
Where A is the refrain
The refrained lines should contain the same words, however substitution or different use of punctuation on the lines has been common.
