Lai, Virelai, and Lai Nouveau welcome at the Rondeau Roundup

The lai, virelai and lai noveau are criminally neglected and frightfully difficult forms. Examples of these forms are also welcome at the Rondeau Roundup. 

Directions for writing a lai can be found under the links list at left.  One of the few examples of the lai I can find is Chryss Yost's lovely "Lai with Sounds of Skin." Here's a link to the poem on Chryss's website:
