    The DIAMANTE is a seven-lined contrast poem set up in a diamond shape, and can be read from top-to-bottom, as well as from bottom-to-top. The Diamante is usually centered on the page.

    The first and seventh lines are the antonyms, second and sixth are two adjectives describing their respective nouns, third and fifth are three "ing" words (present participles) describing each antonym, on the fourth line are two nouns describing each antonym.

    Example by Robert B. Godwin:

    On Marriage

    Evil, Wicked
    Lying, Sinning, Transgressing
    Sinner, Malefactor, Venus, Eros
    Wooing, Courting, Sparking
    Romantic, Erotic
