Stellar Rondel

 
 
A stellar sight delights the eyes
when comes the night from passing day
and ends sun’s starring matinée
with drama of the darkened skies.
 
The world assumes nocturnal guise
as songbirds hush their roundelay.
A stellar sight delights the eyes
when comes the night from passing day.
 
Will once again a sun arise
somewhere somehow so poets may
in other lyric rondels say
long after earthly last goodbyes,
a stellar sight delights the eyes
when comes the night from passing day?

The poem is a rondel, which is a fixed form of verse based on two rhyme sounds and consisting usually of 14 lines in three stanzas (2 quatrains followed by a sestet) in which the first two lines of the first stanza are repeated as the refrain of the second and third stanzas.  The meter is open, but typically has eight syllables.
