Etheree

-

The etheree is a little-known poetry format, consisting of ten lines with graduated syllables. It was created over twenty years ago by an Arkansas poet named Etheree Taylor Armstrong.

The first line is a monosyllabic word; the second line has two syllables, and so on, until the tenth line with, ultimately, ten syllables. The form and outline of your poem should look like the following diagram where X=a syllable:

X

XX

XXX

XXXX

XXXXX

XXXXXX

XXXXXXX

XXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXX

XXXXXXXXXX
