A usual rondel is a fixed form of verse running on two rhymes and consisting of 14 lines of 8-10 syllables each.  It is usually divided into three stanzas, with the first two lines of the first stanza also seving as the refrain for the second and the third.  Text taken from Madeleine L’Engle’s A Ring of Endless Light.
