    Note (etheree)

    Note (Etheree)


    Created by Arkansas poet Ethere Taylor Armstrong, this form consists of 10 lines of unmetered and unrhymed verse. Should rhymes occur - consider them a bonus! The first line has one syllable (this is also the title), and each line adds a syllable. Thus the syllable count is: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10. This form is meant to focus on one idea or subject.

    The Etheree has only 1 verse. If there is more than one verse (dealing with the same subject) it is called an Ethere.

    There is also the Reverse Ethere/Etheree, which is created with a syllable count starting with 10 in the first line, down to 1 in the last line. In this case, the last line is also the title.

    Normally when a form is a "double", it means that there are 2 verses of the same type. This is Not true in the case of the Double Ethere. This form is created with the syllable count of: 1 - 10, 10 - 1. Note that there are 2 of the 10 syllable lines in the middle of the verse. In this case the title is the FIRST one-syllable word.

    A Double Reverse (or inverted) Ethere then, is created by using the syllable count of 10 - 1, 1 - 10, again with the title being the First one-syllable word.

    A Triple Ethere uses the syllable count of: 1 - 10, 10 - 1, 1 - 10. For larger versions of the Ethere, simply follow that same pattern.

    Etheree Example:

    NOTE

    Note.
    A thing
    can denote
    or be of note.
    There are dollar notes,
    memo notes and you can
    take note, note this or note that.
    Love notes are always nice to get!
    Graffiti are just notes on a wall,
    but musical notes, I like best of all!

    Sprinkle a little sugar on your words
    for you never know when you may be
    forced to eat those unsweetened words
    and if you are, you will wish
    they had been much sweeter!
    Harsh, bitter words are
    hard to swallow
    so sprinkle
    sugar
    THICK!

    Ha! Hey TREE - I am loving this little style of writing - It seems a very pictureque way of getting the point across and you did an excellent job on the 2nd Word piece LOL - Loved the humor, as well as the message of this poem - So true - Possibly I could have benefitted by reading this poem 20 minutes ago - I just cussed an internet Mod out on another site I belong too LOL.... Anyway - there was NO sugarcoating anything that I said lol

    All -in-all very interesting style you've shared with us - Thanx

    Jacquii.

    TY Ms J!
    After doing a little more research on this form, I have found that I have made quite a few errors here! Major editing is called for and I'm not sure when I'll get around to it. Not tonight for sure - I'm going to bed!

    Dear Tree,

    Very good, but this pedant needs to make a point :

    Graffiti - just a note on a wall, - graffiti is a plural, so it could be

    Graffiti are just notes on a wall

    Love
    Alan

    PS I'm posting one called Pencil Case.

    Thank-you for pointing that out! I have edited yet again!
    BTW - What then is the singular of graffiti? (I thought graffiti was both singular and plural).
    I love it when you read my stuff - I always learn something new! TY again!

    Dear Tree,

    LOL. From rhymezone : graffito, graffiti - tho the def of both is the same, so maybe I'm too picky ? This is correct, but usage may well have amended that.

    Love
    Alan
