Double Refrain Chant Royal

Type:  

Structure, Metrical Requirement, Repetitive Requirement, Rhyme Scheme Requirement, Isosyllabic

 
Description: 

This is another one I made up. But I ask you, why shouldn’t I? This is a Chant Royal with an extra refrain. To accommodate the extra refrain without messing up the Chanso requirements, I changed the rhyme scheme a might. It just seemed to need doing.
