    Favorites... meet Twilight Memories

    I love the form, but what you've done with it is truly inspiring. You managed to blend the refrain into the preceding line to complete a thought rather than have it be just a piece of the first line repeating. Well done.

    I don't understand why such beautiful poems don't show up on the front page.
    Loved it, M(magical)ichael.

    judges comment

    I was in two minds about awarding this a 10 or 7 points, purely because I am no expert on writing a Rondeau. In fact I have never written one. So I looked at this from a different POV and I am judging this on the content. I love the depth of feeling in this piece, it is cleverly written and the rhyming is used well. As you read it conjures many images, a piece of colorful poetry. Well written 10 points.

    (in fact I did attempt one and I am still dismayed by the form.)
