Request for Poems: Repetition

I love repetition. The last two lines of Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" always pop into my head, "And miles to go before I sleep / And miles to go before I sleep."

So, how did you do? Did you try one of the forms or just go for it and repeat at will? Or did you not even bother repeating anything? Hopefully, you had time to write, at least!

Please leave a link to anything you'd like to share in Mr. Linky.

I wrote a rondeau, which isn't something I've tried before. I can't see Mr Linky.

Hi,
Most of you have read the poems I've posted in the past month that have lots of repetition in them. I'm an artist by career, so I hope you'll enjoy this prose piece that is not to the prompt, other than it is a "repeat" post from the past due to time constraints!

(If anyone has not read my poem "Lockdown" that uses this prompt, on my own from a few weeks ago; please click on the sidebar under the category "poetry" and it'll be somewhere on that page.)

P.S. I can and will stop by while paintings are drying to read your pieces.

My blog went haywire.
I updated my submission to fit the prompt of repetition.
The poem is entitled "She IS a Palette." (Please see the most recent, as in the latest # entry for me, starting with "oops this one :)

No repetition, but I'm just thrilled to be writing limericks again. (Sometimes life's events can make you lose your sense of humor.:) )

I'm celebrating Valentine's Day early with a limerick and haiku and a prompt for other poets to do the same.
