The Rondeau

Since I bumped into Dunbar earlier today and since it’s the anniversary of McCrae’s death tomorrow, now is as good a time as any to start my rondeau listing. With further members of the set to be added as encountered, perhaps eventually some additional notes, here’s what I’ve got so far —

  1. Chandler, Catherine — Gia Dinh [Tilt-a-Whirl]
  2. Coe, Terese — Rondeau for Rhina [Tilt-a-Whirl]
  3. Dees, Diane Elayne — Rose Culture [Tilt-a-Whirl]
  4. Dunbar, Paul Laurence — We Wear the Mask [Poetry In Voice]
  5. Egan, Moira — Grimm Rondeau [The Rondeau Roundup]
  6. Egan, Moira — La Poupée Délaissée (1921) [Tilt-a-Whirl]
  7. Egan, Moira — Snow Rondeau [The Rondeau Roundup]
  8. Heidy-Halberstein, Laura — You Walk [Tilt-a-Whirl]
  9. Henley, William Ernest — What Is to Come [Poet’s Corner]
  10. McCrae, John — In Flanders Fields [Canadian Poetry Online]
  11. Wyatt, Sir Thomas — Request to Cupid for Revenge of His Unkind Love []

And let’s also point to Leigh Hunt’s Rondeau [Poetry Foundation], if but to acknowledge that our modern understanding of the form has emerged from other poetic structures resembling the rondelet, the triolet, and other French repeating forms.
