. . . has arrived in Blogland! The ETHEREE
You can find a definition of the Etheree form, and a fine example of it HERE
. 55 syllables, ten lines, the first line to have but one syllable, then one MORE syllable in each subsequent line. I want to be sure I have the form firmly fixed in my mind before I apply it to a serious poem in etheree form . . . so here goes.
Four Five Six
Seven Eight Nine
Ten Eleven Twelve
Thirteen Fourteen Fifteen
Sixteen Seventeen Eighteen
Nineteen Twenty TwentyOne (OH
DRAT! That don't work out any more, do it?)
Oh well, press on . . TwentyTwo TwentyThree!
Good! I've got the pattern! Now for a poem! (Goes to desk. Opens laptop. Sucks pencil . . . )
