Don’t ask why
Sky full of dark
Rise up and justify
Rise up to the challenge, be firm
Do what’s best for you, don’t have to conform
Go where you can’t be reached, high on the rocky shore
Hindrances on the way, just don’t squirm
You can do it with all your charm
As you reach for the sky
The rainbow’s arc
Till you die

* 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.
