Spring Picture It & Write


The Diatelle is a fun, syllable counting form like the etheree with a twist. The syllable structure of the diatelle is as follows: 1/2/3/4/6/8/10/12/10/8/6/4/3/2/1, but unlike an ethere, has a set rhyme pattern of abbcbccaccbcbba. This poetry form may be written on any subject matter and looks best center aligned in a diamond shape. The Diatelle form was created by Bradley Vrooman.

on blessing
and saying thanks
on Easter and spring
when children pulled practical pranks
when you asked them their faces complete blank
what they found on Easter Day gave them such delight
we see new flowers as we ate and drank
birds singing as we shared lamb shanks
happy for what day brings
street of swank
full of zing
