A Sunday Walk – Diatelle Poem: Daring

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.



To try
To free fly,
No parachute,
Went a regular guy!
He put on his pink striped sweat suit.
Thinking:  “what a great way to pay tribute,
to Mercury! airy god who loved a fun dare!”
So he drove off to a high mountain butte,
To perform his daring debut!
A feat that would defy
Minds too minute.
In the sky:
