  THE RONDEAU  

You bid me try, Blue-eyes, to write
A Rondeau. What! forthwith?--to-night?
    Reflect? Some skill I have, 'tis true;
    But thirteen lines!--and rhymed on two!--
"Refrain," as well. Ah, hapless plight!

Still there are five lines--ranged aright.
These Gallic bonds, I feared, would fright
    My easy Muse. They did, till you--
                                                    You bid me try!

That makes them eight.--The port's in sight;
'Tis all because your eyes are bright!
    Now just a pair to end in "oo,"--
    When maids command, what can't we do?
Behold! The Rondeau--tasteful, light--
                                                    You bid me try!

                                                 Austin Dobson.
