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.
Me a dough
More than you think
More than five years ago
But then you didn’t even blink
You thought you could forever me hoodwink
Your sweet lies and good looks are some of your assets
Took me quite some time to discern you stink
And now I have to doublethink
Not a friend but a foe
Off to a brink
Like a crow
