P.S: I am trying to explore different types of poetry.. this type is called : Diamante

This type of poetry is diamond in shape namely has 1-2-3-4-3-2-1 type of structure, where the number denotes the number of words. Also, they have to follow following rules:

  •  First line:   Noun or subject
  •  Second line:  Two Adjectives describing the first noun/subject
  •  Third line:   Three -ing words describing the first noun/subject
  •  Fourth line:  4 words; two about the first noun/subject, two about the antonym/synonym
  •  Fifth line:   Three -ing words about the antonym/synonym
  •  Sixth line:   Two adjectives describing the antonym/synonym
  •  Seventh line: Antonym/synonym for the subject
Hope you guys would also try this one :)
