A Poem in Rictameter
Rictameter is a nine lined scheme starting with a two-syllable word in the first line. Then from the second line, the number of syllables per line is increased consequently by two. i.e. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10. From the sixth line, the number of the syllable is decreased by two i.e. 8, 6, 4, 2 making the final line the same two-syllable word you began with.
to flourish more
Breaking strong shells of yours
That imprisons in thoughts forlorn
Making you the victim of regrets own.
Leave the regular routines slow
To move ahead and grow
With inner glow
The Brevette, poem consists of three words in a sequence. The first line is a subject, second is a verb, and the third line is an object. It was created by Emily Romano. There are only three words in the poem, giving it the title Brevette.
When the entry of wind be blocked
The breathless body will be burned
The senses, muscle, bones and blood
Every part will be adrift and soiled.
All its possessions will stay
Except the owner of this bodyI
It will leave for the same way
From where it started its journey.
Oh dear beloved,
I know my memories will be faded
I know I'll be a forgotten history
But the things that still remain
Are the divine deeds of mine.
